clude the possibility of a direct effect of metoclopramide and propantheline on absorption across the intestinal mucosa. We have tested the effects of these compounds and of phenobarbitone on D-xylose absorption from rat small intestine in vitro. Everted sacs were used with Krebs phosphate buffer containing calci,um and glucose.' Transport of 50 mM xylose was measured with a concentration gradientthat is, with buffer only and no xylose initially within the sac. The drugs were added to the… Expand

Topics from this paper

Incidence and potentiation of external and internal fetal anomalies resulting from chlordiazepoxide and amitriptyline alone and in combination.
TLDR
The Cdz-Amt combination caused significant increases in cranial malformations, open eye, bent tail, abnormal lung, and urogenital anomalies, and the teratogenic effects of potentiation between the components of this combination are discussed in terms of external and internal mal Formations. Expand
A study of the teratogenic and fetotoxic effects of large doses of chlordiazepoxide used for self-poisoning by 35 pregnant women
TLDR
Very large doses of chlordiazepoxide used for suicide attempts during pregnancy did not induce a higher rate of congenital abnormalities but were associated with dose-dependent intrauterine growth retardation, which was confirmed by a dose–response relationship and by the higher rates of low birth–weight newborns. Expand
The effects of benzodiazepine use during pregnancy and lactation.
TLDR
The prolonged use of benzodiazepines throughout pregnancy raised the concern that there may be altered transmitter synthesis and function, leading to neurobehavioural problems in the children, but there has been no significant increase in the incidence of neonatal jaundice and kernicterus in term infants. Expand
A population-based case-control study of oral chlordiazepoxide use during pregnancy and risk of congenital abnormalities.
TLDR
Therapeutic doses of chlordiazepoxide during pregnancy are unlikely to pose a substantial teratogenic risk to the human fetus, although a somewhat higher rate of congenital cardiovascular malformations cannot be excluded. Expand
Effects of commonly used benzodiazepines on the fetus, the neonate, and the nursing infant.
TLDR
Minimizing the risks of benzodiazepine therapy among pregnant or lactating women involves using drugs that have established safety records at the lowest dosage for the shortest possible duration, avoiding use during the first trimester, and avoiding multidrug regimens. Expand
Psychotropics during pregnancy and lactation: a review.
TLDR
By relating the data available to the urgency of the patient's need for psychotropic treatment, the physician can strive for an optimal benefit-to-risk decision in what at present is one of the most unclear and difficult areas of psychiatric drug prescription. Expand
Psychotropic Drugs in Pregnancy and Lactation
TLDR
It appears that most, but not all, current psychotropic drugs appear fairly safe for use in pregnancy and lactation. Expand
Neonatal Adaptation Issues After Maternal Exposure to Prescription Drugs: Withdrawal Syndromes and Residual Pharmacological Effects
TLDR
This narrative review is aimed at the description of drugs and drug classes for which licit maternal use in the predelivery period has been associated with neonatal non-teratogenic disorders, mainly for substances used illicitly for recreational purposes. Expand
Psychiatric disorders in pregnancy.
TLDR
This review, although not exhaustive, provides information on the potential impact of psychiatric illness on obstetric outcome and basic guidelines can help decrease the number of exposures and aid in conducting clinical care with at least some reproductive safety data. Expand
Psychotropic Drugs in Pregnancy and Lactation
TLDR
The literature on the use of psychotropic drugs, including antidepressants, mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, and benzodiazepines, in pregnant and breast-feeding women is reviewed and relevant data on teratogenic effects, neonatal toxicity, perinatal syndromes, and neurobehavioral sequelae is presented.
