The effect of repeated treatment with oxaprotiline enantiomers on central 5-HT receptor subpopulations.


The effect of repeated administration of (+)-OXA (a noradrenaline (NA) uptake inhibitor) and (-)-OXA (devoid of an effect on the NA uptake, but a clinically active antidepressant drug) on central 5-HT receptor subpopulations was studied. (-)-OXA given repeatedly, but not acutely, attenuated the 8-OH-DPAT-induced hypothermia in mice. (+)-OXA administered… (More)
