Influence of several convulsants on the protective activity of a non-competitive AMPA/kainate antagonist, LY 300164, and lamotrigine against maximal electroshock in mice.


Aminophylline (50-100 mg/kg) and strychnine (0.125-0.5 mg/kg) significantly raised the ED50 values of LY 300164 against maximal electroshock in mice, from 4 to 8 mg/kg (aminophylline 100 mg/kg) and from 3.6 to 11.5 mg/kg (strychnine 0.5 mg/kg). Also, aminophylline (25-50 mg/kg) and strychnine (0.125-0.25 mg/kg) increased the ED50 value of lamotrigine in… (More)
