One session of FS induced anxiolytic-like behavior in mice tested in both the EBT and the BBT. This effect of FS was blocked by a previous administration of either picrotoxin or WAY 100635. The 5-HT(1A) compounds produced a clear anxiolytic-like effect in UST animals. By contrast, with low doses of either 8-OH-DPAT (0.01 mg/kg), buspirone (0.03 mg/kg) or indorenate (0.3, 0.6 mg/kg) ST mice showed a decrease in the anti-anxiety-like effect observed after FS. No change in ambulation that could mask the results of the anxiety test was registered.

CBT is an effective, short-term treatment for reducing the anxiety and depressive symptoms that often occur after an individual is diagnosed with cancer or treated for cancer. There is robust evidence that treatment of these psychological symptoms can improve both the quality of life and course of illness in cancer patients, so oncologists and other clinicians need to regularly screen patients with cancer and other chronic life-threatening conditions for anxiety and depression and, if present, actively promote the treatment of these symptoms. This study shows that CBT can be effective for cancer patients even when they are unable to speak.

ERG response amplitudes were significantly (P < 0.05) depressed more than 66% in vehicle-dosed rats after light exposure. ERGs were significantly higher in rats treated with AL-8309A (0.1-30 mg/kg), 8-OH DPAT (0.1-1 mg/kg), buspirone (5-20 mg/kg) or topical ocular with 1.75% AL-8309B. Retinas from AL-8309A and 8-OH DPAT-treated rats were devoid of histologic lesions. Significant protection was measured in rats dosed once 0, 24, or 48 hours before light exposure. Protection provided by dosing with AL-8309B or 8-OH DPAT was inhibited in rats predosed with WAY-100635.

The effects of buspirone on hippocampal pyramidal cells of the CA1 region were examined by means of intracellular recordings in in vitro hippocampal brain slices. Bath administration of buspirone elicited a long lasting hyperpolarization which was mediated by an increase in potassium conductance and resembled the hyperpolarizing component of the response to 5-HT (5-hydroxytryptamine). Buspirone, however, failed to mimic the depolarizing action of 5-HT or to reduce the calcium-activated after hyperpolarization. Quantitative comparisons of the hyperpolarizing responses of 5-HT and buspirone revealed that the maximal hyperpolarization induced by buspirone was significantly smaller than that induced by 5-HT. Since the buspirone induced hyperpolarization was also accompanied by a surmountable antagonism of 5-HT responses, these results indicate that buspirone behaves as a partial agonist at a subpopulation of 5-HT receptors in the CA1 region of the hippocampus. Administration of the buspirone congeners gepirone and isapirone also elicited a hyperpolarization and reduced 5-HT responses, although they lack antidopaminergic activity, indicating that the effects observed with buspirone are unlikely to be mediated through dopamine receptors. These results indicated that novel anxiolytics can discriminate between functional 5-HT receptors. In conjunction with previous biochemical and electrophysiological studies, the present results suggest that their administration might alter the balance of serotonergic actions on postsynaptic neurons.

The present study evaluated the role of various neurotransmitter systems in mediating buspirone's blockade of the fear-potentiated startle effect, where acoustic startle amplitude is normally increase in the presence of a light previously paired with a shock. Large lesions of the dorsal and median raphe nuclei or IP injections of the serotonin antagonists cinanserin (10 mg/kg) or cyproheptadine (5 mg/kg) did not alter fear-potentiated startle, nor did these treatments prevent buspirone (5 or 10 mg/kg SC) from blocking fear-potentiated startle. The 5-HT 1A agonist 8-OH-DPAT (2.5-10.0) did not block fear-potentiated startle even at doses that produced a marked "5-HT syndrome". Another 5-HT 1A agonist, ipsapirone (10-20 mg/kg), blocked potentiated startle only at a very high dose (40 mg/kg). p-Chlorophenylalanine and p-chloroamphetamine did not alter fear-potentiated startle. Finally, pretreatment with the benzodiazepine receptor antagonist RO-15-1788 (1 mg/kg); the opiate antagonist naloxone (2 mg/kg) or the alpha 2-adrenergic antagonist yohimbine (5 mg/kg) did not reduce fear-potentiated startle, nor did they prevent buspirone from blocking fear-potentiated startle. Taken together, the data do not support the hypothesis that buspirone's anxiolytic effects are mediated by actions at 5-HT 1A receptors and more generally indicate that serotonergic neurons do not play an important role in fear-potentiated startle.

The inhibition of forskolin-stimulated adenylate cyclase activity by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptor agonists was measured in rat hippocampal membranes isolated from animals treated with vehicle or islet-activating protein (IAP; pertussis toxin). In vehicle-treated animals, 5-HT, 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin, buspirone, and gepirone were potent in inhibiting forskolin-stimulated adenylate cyclase activity with EC50 values of 60, 76, 376, and 530 nM, respectively. IAP treatment reduced by 30-55% the 5-HT1A agonist inhibition of adenylate cyclase activity via 5-HT1A receptors. The data indicate that the inhibitory guanine nucleotide-binding protein or Go (a similar GTP-binding protein of unknown function purified from brain) mediates the 5-HT1A agonist inhibition of hippocampal adenylate cyclase.

The agitation crisis in the awakening phase after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most difficult behavioral disorders to alleviate. Current treatment options are heterogeneous and may involve excessive sedation. Practice guidelines are required by professionals in charge of TBI patients. Few reviews were published but those are old and based on expert opinions. The purpose of this work is to propose evidence-based guidelines to treat the agitation crisis.

In recent years, the inappropriate use of antipsychotics by young Korean men has become a social problem. As military service exemptions are given for mental illness, some men pose as mental health patients to avoid military service. In order to verify the authenticity of mental illnesses, we developed simultaneous analytical methods for the detection of 15 antipsychotics and 2 of their metabolites in hair using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) analysis. The target drugs were modafinil, atomoxetine, aripiprazole, benztropine, buspirone, duloxetine, gabapentin, oxcarbazepine, topiramate, escitalopram, paliperidone, ziprasidone, lamotrigine, clonazepam, levetiracetam, and metabolites of oxcarbazepine and clonazepam. To remove possible contaminants on the hair surface, hair samples were washed twice with methanol and distilled water, and then were extracted with methanol overnight at 38°C. Desipramine-d3 was used as an internal standard. LC-MS/MS analysis was performed on an Agilent 1290 Infinity UHPLC coupled to an AB Sciex Qtrap(®) 5500 MS/MS. The total chromatographic run time was 14min. The following validation parameters were evaluated: selectivity, linearity, limit of detection (LOD), limit of quantification (LOQ), precision, accuracy, matrix effect, and recovery. The LOD and LOQ values for all analytes, except modafinil, ranged from 0.2 to 10pg/mg hair and from 0.2 to 20pg/mg hair, respectively. Good linearity was achieved for most of the analytes in the range of 20-200pg/mg hair. The method showed acceptable precision and accuracy, which were less than 15%, as well as satisfactory matrix effects and recoveries. Furthermore, this method was also applied to the analysis of rat hair samples. The study in rats showed that the concentrations of atomoxetine and aripiprazole in pigmented hair were significantly higher than those in non-pigmented hair. However, no significant difference was observed in the concentration of topiramate between pigmented and non-pigmented hair. This method will be useful in monitoring the inappropriate use of antipsychotics in suspects posing as mental health patients. However, further research is necessary before applying this method to authentic hair samples from mental health patients.

There is a growing appreciation of the heterogeneity of alcoholic patients with implications for treatment intervention. Several recent studies suggest that a minority of alcoholic patients suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorders, although symptoms of anxiety may be present in alcoholics while drinking and in the acute, subacute and protracted periods of abstinence from alcohol. In addition, recent research on biological mechanisms of anxiety may suggest a testable model for examining the existence of an altered biological state associated with symptoms of protracted abstinence in alcoholics, and may suggest an additional rationale for studying newer anxiolytic drugs in the postwithdrawal management of alcoholic patients. In the mid-1970s, Benjamin Kissin made three points regarding the optimal qualities for a tranquilizing drug in the treatment of alcoholism: it should be effective in maintaining individuals in treatment, it should have a low potential for abuse and it should not potentiate the effects of alcohol. Buspirone, a new anxiolytic drug, fulfills the second two criteria. The case for examining anxiolytics with low abuse potential in alcoholic patients is reviewed.

This article reviews psychopharmacology in organ transplant patients, with particular attention to the changes in the metabolism and elimination of drugs during organ insufficiency and drug interactions in the immunosuppressed state. The side effects of psychotropic drugs need to be distinguished from those of immunosuppressants. Antidepressants, including tricyclics, heterocyclics, MAOIs, stimulants, and newer agents, are discussed. Use of neuroleptics for delirium, mania, and other organic disorders is described. Lithium may be more difficult to use in the immediate postoperative period. Anxiolytics, including benzodiazepines and buspirone, are useful depending on the underlying medical problem.

Buspirone, an azapirone derivative and a 5-HT1A partial agonist, is the first nonbenzodiazepine anxiolytic introduced into medicine for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder. A series of well-controlled clinical trials demonstrated that its anxiolytic properties were similar to those of various benzodiazepines and significantly better than placebo. More recently, antidepressant effects were also observed. Patients with clinical indications for which buspirone seems to be particularly appropriate are those with generalized anxiety disorder, those with chronic anxiety, the anxious elderly, and, perhaps, many patients of all ages who suffer from mixed symptoms of anxiety and depression. Studies conducted with patients suffering from panic disorder have so far been inconclusive, and thus buspirone is, for the present at least, not recommended for routine treatment of panic disorder. Buspirone seems to be most helpful in anxious patients who do not demand immediate gratification or the immediate relief they associate with the benzodiazepine response. Slower and more gradual onset of anxiety relief is balanced by the increased safety and lack of dependency-producing aspects of buspirone. Finally, whether or not buspirone may possess "curative" properties, in addition to "anxiety-suppressant" properties, that allow the patient to improve coping skills with time requires further exploration.

A 52 year old woman on buspirone was prescribed paroxetine for depressive symptoms. She also got papaverine. Within a month she experienced high fever, shivering, tremor, hyper-reflexia, tachycardia (120 bpm), and tracheal cramps, symptoms of the serotonin syndrome. Since both paroxetine and buspirone have serotonergic effects it is probable that the symptoms were caused by the drug combination. She also had ecchymoses on her thighs, probably due to serotonergic effects. The symptoms rapidly decreased after withdrawing paroxetine. Paroxetine, papaverine, and possibly also buspirone interact with cytochrome P450 CYP2D6. They can probably inhibit the metabolism of each other. We recommend observance of serotonergic syndrome symptoms and restricted combination of serotoninergic drugs.

The interaction at 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors of the novel naphtylpiperazine, S 14671 (1-[2-(2-thenoylamino)ethyl]-4[1-(7- methoxynaphtyl)]piperazine), was compared to that of the 5-HT1A ligands, 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin hydrobromide (8-OH-DPAT), WY 50,324 [N-(29(4-(2-pyrimidinyl)-1-piperazinyl)ethyl)tricyclo(,7) )- decane-1-carboxamide], (+)-flesinoxan, buspirone and BMY 7378 [(8-[2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)- 1-piperazinyl]ethyl]-8-azaspirol[-4-]-decane-7,9-dione 2HCl]. S 14671 showed a very high affinity for 5-HT1A sites (pKi, 9.3) as compared to the reference ligands (pKi values, 9.2, 8.7, 8.7, 7.9 and 8.7, respectively). S 14671 bound in an apparently competitive manner and, in distinction to the reference compounds, possessed a Hill Coefficient (1.4) significantly superior to 1. Although showing low affinity at 5-HT1B and 5-HT3 sites, S 14671 displayed significant affinity at both 5-HT1C and 5-HT2 sites; pKi, 7.8 in each case. Furthermore, S 14671 acted as an antagonist of 5-HT-stimulated phosphoinositide turnover in rat choroid plexus (5-HT1C) and cortex (5-HT2). In vivo, upon s.c. administration, S 14671 acted as a high efficacy agonist in models of 5-HT1A receptor-mediated activity: induction of flat-body posture, spontaneous tail-flicks, hypothermia and corticosterone secretion and inhibition of morphine-induced antinociception. In every test, S 14671 was the most potent compound: it was active at doses as low as 5 micrograms/kg s.c. Relative potency across all tests was S 14671 greater than 8-OH-DPAT greater than WY 50,324 greater than (+)-flesinoxan greater than buspirone with BMY 7378 too weak for comparison to be meaningful. The action of S 14671 in 5-HT1A tests was blocked by BMY 7378 and the 5-HT1A antagonist, (-)-alprenolol, but unaffected by the 5-HT1C/2 antagonist, ritanserin, and the 5-HT3 antagonist, ondansetron. Activation of postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors was confirmed in 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine-lesioned rats, in which the potency of S 14671 to elicit spontaneous tail-flicks was potentiated. Activation of presynaptic receptors was demonstrated by inhibition of the electrical activity of the dorsal raphe nucleus with the following order of relative potency: S 14671 greater than 8-OH-DPAT greater than WY 50,324 greater than BMY 7378 greater than buspirone. Spiperone, which acts as a pure 5-HT1A antagonist at raphe 5-HT1A receptors, blocked the action of S 14671. In conclusion, S 14671 is a structurally novel ligand manifesting high efficacy and exceptional potency at both pre- and postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

The present study examined whether the effect of stimulation of the nucleus raphe magnus (NRM) is mediated by spinal cord dorsal horn serotonin1A (5-HT1A) receptors in the rat. This hypothesis predicts that nociceptive dorsal horn units inhibited by NRM stimulation or iontophoretic 5-HT application would also be inhibited by iontophoresis of the selective 5-HT1A agonists 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) and buspirone. A total of 78 dorsal horn wide-dynamic-range neurons were recorded. Overall, 62% of the cells tested (48/78) were responsive to electrical stimulation of the NRM with the predominant response being inhibitory (38/48; 79%). Fifty-eight cells were tested for their response to both NRM stimulation and 8-OH-DPAT iontophoresis: 20/58 cells were inhibited by NRM stimulation and 50% of the cells inhibited by NRM stimulation were also inhibited by 8-OH-DPAT. Fifty-two cells were tested for their response to both NRM stimulation and buspirone iontophoresis: 14/52 cells were inhibited by NRM stimulation with 9/14 similarly inhibited by buspirone. To examine whether exogenously applied serotonin produced an effect through 5-HT1A receptors, the effect of both 5-HT and 8-OH-DPAT iontophoresis was tested on 57 dorsal horn neurons. The majority of cells (25/57) were inhibited by 5-HT application; 15/25 were similarly inhibited by 8-OH-DPAT. The response of 48 dorsal horn cells to 5-HT and buspirone iontophoresis was compared. Forty-four percent (21/48) of the cells were inhibited by 5-HT; 16/21 were also inhibited by buspirone.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Buspirone is disclosed in U.S. Patent No. 3,717,634 as a pharmaceutically active compound that has been found to be effective for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression. In this randomized, two-treatment, two-period, multidose crossover study, the pharmacokinetics of a once-daily extended-release (ER)formulation of buspirone was compared with that of an immediate-release (IR) formulation of commercially available buspirone. A total of 30 mg of the ER formulation was administered to 36 healthy volunteers once daily for 7 days, and 15 mg of the IR formulation was administered twice daily for 7 days. Pharmacokinetic profiles of buspirone and its metabolite, 1-pyrimidinylpiperazine (1-PP), were obtained at steady state. The bioavailability of buspirone from the ER formulation was more than three times higher than that from the IR formulation at steady state, and that of 1-PP was about 25% less. The mean steady-state Cmax of buspirone from the ER formulation was 46% higher than that from the IR formulation (p < 0.05), and that for 1-PP was lower by 29% (p < 0.05). The mean apparent half-life of buspirone from the ER formulation (9.04 hours) was considerably longer than that observed for the IR formulation (3.06 hours). The median 1-PP/buspirone AUC ratio was much higher for the IR formulation at steady state (24.4) than for the ER formulation (6.44). There were no significant differences in average pharmacokinetic metrics observed in men and women. Based on these observations of the potential benefits of once-daily dosing with the ER product in terms of prolonged buspirone plasma concentrations, a significant increase in the ratio of buspirone to 1-PP concentration with a lower intersubject variation could be achieved that should provide an improvement in the desired therapeutic effects of buspirone.

The anti-conflict activities of diazepam and buspirone were examined on three schedules designed to condition the suppression of licking. The schedules differed in the degree to which they predicted (signalled) the presentation of a conflict inducing electric shock. The first study investigated the effects of three doses of diazepam (0.5, 2, and 5 mg/kg IP) on a predictable, a moderately predictable, and an unpredictable schedule of shock presentation. Diazepam induced a significant increase from baseline in licking during the shock component on all three schedules. These anticonflict effects were the most consistent on the predictable schedule, and least consistent on the unpredictable schedule. A second experiment investigated the anticonflict activity of three doses of buspirone (0.125, 0.25, and 0.625 mg/kg SC) on each of these three schedules. The predictable and moderately predictable schedules failed to detect anticonflict activity at any dose of buspirone. However, the lowest dose (0.125 mg/kg) of buspirone increased shocked licking and the highest dose (0.625 mg/kg) decreased shock component licking on the unpredictable schedule. Thus the unpredictable schedule was sensitive to both anticonflict (anxiolytic) and proconflict (anxiogenic) effects of buspirone.

In the present study we further investigate functions of the neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) in the mature central nervous system and its implications for animal behaviour. To this end we generated transgenic mice expressing the major NCAM isoform with the largest cytoplasmic domain, NCAM180, under control of a promoter for the small form neurofilament gene. Transgenic mice were also bred with mice deficient in endogenous NCAM (Ncam-/- mice) so that effects of NCAM180 could be analysed in the presence and absence of endogenous NCAM. While overexpression of transgenic NCAM180 was without apparent behavioural or morphological effect, its expression in Ncam-/- mice counteracted NCAM ablation-induced aggressive, anxiety-like and antidepressant-like behaviour. It furthermore prevented a hypersensitivity of Ncam-/- mice to the anxiolytic serotonin1A (5-HT1A) receptor agonist buspirone. Such recovery of emotional behaviour and behavioural 5-HT1A response occurred in spite of misdevelopment of the olfactory bulb and hippocampus that is characteristic of Ncam-/- mice, and without an apparent change in the expression of 5-HT1A binding sites in the brain. Hippocampus- and amygdala-dependent learning, though disturbed in Ncam-/- mice, remained unaffected by the transgenic NCAM180. We suggest an involvement of NCAM180-mediated cell recognition processes in the serotonergic modulation of emotional behaviour in adult mice.

In adult mammals cells generated in the subventricular zone (SVZ) migrate to olfactory bulbs (OB). Functional significance of this continuous neurogenesis is not clear. We injected opossums (Monodelphis domestica) for seven consecutive days with a 5HT(1A) agonist (8-OH-DPAT or buspirone) or its antagonist WAY100635. One hour after each of these injections bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) a marker of dividing cells was also injected. Two months later, when newly generated neurons settled in the OB and matured the ability of these opossums to detect hidden food by olfactory cues was tested. Afterwards, numbers of BrdU-labeled cell nuclei in their OB were counted and a phenotype of labeled cells established. In all groups investigated the majority of new cells differentiated into neurons (55-76%) and a lower proportion into astroglia (6-12%). Numbers of BrdU-labeled cells differed depending on the applied treatment: both agonists of the 5HT(1A) receptor increased these numbers, while its antagonist decreased them. The increased number of new OB interneurons did not change the time required for finding all three food items and therefore did not improve the opossums' performance in this test of the olfactory perception. However, opossums that had the reduced number of new generated OB cells searched longer for each food item and in consequence took three times longer to find all three crickets, than did opossums from other groups. In conclusion, lower numbers of new neurons in the opossums OB correlated with their worse behavioral performance in a test based on olfactory perception.

In the present study we evaluated the effects of the 5-HT(1A) receptor partial agonist, buspirone hydrochloride and the 5-HT(1A) receptor agonist, 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino) tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) on the elevated plus-maze. In addition, the ability of the 5-HT(1A) receptor antagonist, WAY 100635, to reverse the effects of both compounds was determined. 8-OH-DPAT (0.01 0.3 mg/kg, SC) dose-dependently increased the percent time on, and the number of entries to, the open arms of the maze. In a second experiment, WAY 100635 (0.003 0.3 mg/kg, SC) dose-dependently reversed the anxiolytic-like effects of 8-OH-DPAT (0.3 mg/kg, SC). In a third experiment, buspirone (0.3-4.0 mg/kg, SC) dose-dependently decreased the time spent on the open arms of the maze, indicating that it had anxiogenic-like effects. Buspirone also significantly decreased locomotor activity, which was evident in the decreases in the distance travelled on the open arms, closed arms and on the maze as a whole, the total number of arm entries and the mean speed of the animals. In contrast to its effects on 8-OH-DPAT-induced behaviours in the maze, WAY 100635 (0.003 1.0 mg/kg SC) failed to reverse any of the effects induced by buspirone. Animals treated with high doses of WAY 100635 (0.3 1.0 mg/kg SC) alone did not significantly differ from vehicle-treated animals on any of the measures recorded during elevated plus-maze trials. These data suggest that the anxiolytic-like effects of 8-OH-DPAT, but not the anxiogenic-like effects of buspirone, on the elevated plus-maze are mediated via 5-HT(1A) receptors in the CNS.

Buspirone-treated patients averaged a 12.4-point reduction from their baseline total HAM-A score of 24.9, while their counterparts on placebo averaged a 9.5-point reduction from their mean baseline total HAM-A score of 25.6. This 2.9-point difference in HAM-A reductions between treatment groups was significantly different (p < .03). Buspirone patients decreased their HAM-D scores by an average 5.7 points from their mean baseline total HAM-D score of 15.8, while placebo patients decreased their HAM-D scores by an average 3.5 points from their mean baseline score of 16.3 (p < .05). Overall, the incidence of adverse events was similar for both treatment groups, but buspirone-treated patients reported significantly more nausea, dizziness, somnolence, and sweating than placebo patients.

A simple high-performance liquid chromatographic method with ultraviolet absorbance detection has been developed to determine the concentration of N-3-(2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-3-pirrolin-3-carboxamidopropylphthalim ide hydrochloride; A-2545), a new antiarrhythmic agent from human plasma. Separation of the investigated compound and internal standard was achieved on a Nucleosil 7 C18 column with a 0.01-M potassium dihydrogenphosphate buffer (pH 2.5)-methanol (60:40, v/v) mobile phase. The detection was performed at 220 nm. During the determinations, buspirone served as the internal standard. The compounds were isolated from plasma on a Bakerbond C18 solid-phase extraction cartridge and the mean absolute recovery was 92.9%. The limit of quantitation was found to be 10 ng/ml. The bioanalytical method was validated with respect to linearity, within- and between-day accuracy and precision, system suitability and stability. All validated parameters were found to be within the internationally required limits. The developed analytical method for A-2545 was found to be suitable for application in pharmacokinetic studies and for human drug monitoring.

The present data indicate that R-(+)-8-OHDPAT can increase motor activity in monoamine-depleted rats through postsynaptic 5-HT(1A) receptors and not necessarily through 5-HT(1A) autoreceptor-mediated alterations in 5-HT synthesis and release. A potential mechanism of 5-HT(1A)-mediated modulation of non-monoaminergic motor circuits in the brain is discussed. Taken together, the results suggest that 5-HT(1A) agonists would provide a novel approach to the amelioration of antipsychotic-induced side effects and the symptomatic treatment of Parkinson's disease.

1. Rat plasma corticosterone increases during 2 hr restraint stress. The animals then exhibit hypophagia and decreased locomotion occurs on placement 24 hr later in an open field. Repeating the restraint daily for 5-7 days leads to adaptation. Failure to adapt is the depression model which is associated with three factors implicated in the illness ie increased plasma glucocorticoid level, female sex and inadequate 5-HT function as revealed by behavioural response to the agonist 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl 5-HT. However, the greater stress induced rise of corticosterone in female rats may reflect a greater response to activation of hypothalamic 5-HT receptors mediating corticoid release. 2 buy buspar online . The model responds appropriately to chronic antidepressant pretreatment. Single injections of 5-HT1A agonists (8-OH-DPAT, buspirone, ipsapirone, gepirone) but not of benzodiazepine anxiolytics have similar effects. Therefore, 5-HT1A agonists may have antidepressant activity. Both behavioural and neurochemical evidence indicates that the adaptive effects of 5-HT1A agonists on the depression model are associated with desensitisation of somatodendritic 5-HT1A autoreceptors.

Neurons in the nucleus raphe magnus were recorded extracellularly from barbiturate-anesthetized rats, and were classified by their responses to noxious mechanical stimulation as either pinch-excited, pinch-inhibited or biphasic (inhibited then excited). They were then subjected to iontophoresis of serotonin, some serotonergic agonists and antagonists, acetylcholine, and gamma-amino-n-butyric acid. Serotonin reduced the spontaneous firing of most pinch-inhibited cells (79%). Significantly fewer (P < 0.05) pinch-excited and biphasic cells were inhibited by serotonin (40% and 45%, respectively); in these two cell classes, the observed response was often excitation (30% and 14%), or inhibition for 10-30s followed by excitation for the next 1-2 min (25% and 36%). Acetylcholine showed a similar, statistically significant distribution of effects (P < 0.05), inhibiting all pinch-inhibited neurons (n = 10) but fewer pinch-excited (53%, n = 17) and biphasic neurons (20%, n = 10). Excitation, or excitation then inhibition, was again found frequently buy buspar online among the remaining pinch-excited and biphasic cells. The effect of gamma-amino-n-butyric acid was only inhibitory. In all three nociceptive classes, the serotonin-1A agonist buspirone (n = 15) was inhibitory (87%) and the serotonin-1C/2 antagonist ketanserin (n = 20) was excitatory (35%). The mixed serotonin-1/2 antagonist methysergide (n = 10) was inhibitory (50%) or excitatory (40%). 8-Hydroxy-dipropylaminotetralin (n = 3) was found to increase spontaneous activity (possibly because of partial serotonin-1A agonsim), and +/- propranolol (n = 4) to reduce it (possibly through beta-adrenoceptor antagonism, not serotonin-1A antagonism).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs), a family of signal transduction mediators important in a host of cellular activities, include the extracellular signal-regulated kinases Erk1 and Erk2. We determined whether 5-HT(1A) receptors activate Erk1/2 in rat brain in vivo, as they do in recombinant cell lines. In contrast to the effect in cells, the 5-HT(1A) receptor agonist 8-hydroxy-N,N-diproylaminotetralin (8-OH-DPAT) dose- and time-dependently decreased basal levels of phosphorylated Erk1/2 (phospho-Erk1/2) in rat hippocampus (ED(50) approximately 0.1 mg/kg, maximum approximately 90%) without altering total Erk1/2. The effects were kinase-specific, as 8-OH-DPAT did not modify phosphorylated or total levels of the MAPKs c-Jun-N-terminal kinase/stress-activated protein kinase (JNK/SAPK) and p38 MAPK. Moreover, 8-OH-DPAT did not modify phospho-Erk1/2 in striatum or frontal cortex. The effect of 8-OH-DPAT was blocked by pretreatment with the selective 5-HT(1A) receptor antagonists N-[2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-1-piperazinyl]ethyl]-N-2-pyridinylcyclohexanecarboxamide (WAY 100635), 1-(2-methoxyphenyl)-4-(4-[2-phthalimido]butyl)piperazine (NAN-190) and 4-fluoro-N-(2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)1-piperazinyl]ethyl)-N-(2-pyridinyl)benzamide dihydrochloride (p-MPPF), but not by the weak partial agonist/antagonist 8-(2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-1-piperazinyl]ethyl)-8-azaspiro(4.5)decane-7,9-dione dihydrochloride (BMY 7378). Other 5-HT(1A) receptor agonists (buspirone, gepirone and ipsapirone) also reduced phospho-Erk1/2 levels in hippocampus. 8-OH-DPAT also reduced the levels of the upstream activator of Erk1/2, phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase kinase (phospho-MEK1/2), and at least one buy buspar online potential downstream target, the nuclear transcription factor phospho-Elk-1. The region- and kinase-specific effects suggest that the Erk1/2 signal transduction cascade is likely an important differential mediator of 5-HT(1A) receptor-regulated events in the central nervous system.

Neonatal pain and stress induce long-term changes in pain sensitivity and behavior. Previously we found alterations in pain sensitivity in adolescent rats exposed to early-life adverse events. We tested whether these alterations have long-lasting effects and if those effects can be improved by the 5-hydroxytryptamine 1A (5-HT1A) receptor agonist buspirone injected chronically during the adolescent period. This study investigates: (1) effects of inflammatory pain (the injection of formalin into the pad of a hind paw) or stress (short maternal deprivation-isolation, MI), or their combination in 1-2-day-old rats on the adult basal pain, formalin-induced pain, anxiety and depression; (2) effects of adolescent buspirone in adult rats that experienced similar early-life insults. Changes in nociceptive thresholds were evaluated using the hot plate (HP) and buy buspar online formalin tests; levels of anxiety and depression were assessed with the elevated plus maze and forced swim tests respectively. Both neonatal painful and stressful treatments induced long-term alterations in the forced swim test. Other changes in adult behavioral responses were dependent on the type of neonatal treatment. There was a notable lack of long-term effects of the combination of early inflammatory pain and stress of MI on the pain responses, anxiety levels or on the effects of adolescent buspirone. This study provides the first evidence that chronic injection of buspirone in adolescent rats alters antinociceptive and anxiolytic effects limited to adult rats that showed behavioral alterations induced by early-life adverse treatments. These data highlight the role of 5-HT1A receptors in long-term effects of neonatal inflammatory pain and stress of short MI on adaptive behavior and possibility of correction of the pain and psychoemotional behavior that were altered by adverse pain/stress intervention using buspirone during critical adolescent period.

Ketanserin but not propranolol had buy buspar online a fully sedative profile and may confound pupillometric assessment of EDS. Beta adrenergic receptors do not appear to participate in arousal and pupillary functions, while 5HT1a receptors reduce pupil size without affecting arousal. Pupil size may not be used unequivocally as an index of the level of alertness in the case of drug-induced changes, when drugs interfere with the central pupil control mechanism in ways that are unrelated to their effects on arousal.

Buspirone, a novel psychotropic anxioselective agent, produced a dose-dependent decrease in the level of acetylcholine in the striatum of the rat. The maximum effect of about 25-30% was produced at the dose of 20 mg kg-1. A smaller decrease of 10% was also found in the n. accumbens-olfactory tubercle while other brain regions were unaffected. The drug did not alter striatal choline acetyltransferase or acetylcholinesterase activities and was feeble in displacing [3H]dexetimide from its specific muscarinic binding sites. The effect of buspirone in lowering acetylcholine content was more marked and longer lasting in the striatum of female than male rats. Buspirone proved to be weak as a blocker of the dopamine receptor agonist, apomorphine, and it appears that only a small proportion of the decrease in striatal acetylcholine content can be attributed to the blockade of dopamine receptors. Rapid homologous tolerance to an acute challenge with buspirone on striatal acetylcholine was achieved within seven days of its chronic administration, and, unlike clozapine, a cross tolerance of buspirone to chronic haloperidol treatment was also observed. Other data indicating that the drug differed from haloperidol both qualitatively and quantitatively on dopaminergic neurochemical parameters, and the fact that it is not cataleptogenic, suggest that buspirone cannot be considered buy buspar online a typical neuroleptic agent. The possibility that buspirone may act as an agonist at certain presynaptic dopamine receptors, which could translate into a fall in striatal acetylcholine content, is discussed.

1. Metabolism of the antianxiety drug buspirone was studied by in vitro incubations with rat liver microsomes and hepatocytes. Metabolites were isolated and purified buy buspar online by h.p.l.c. The purified metabolites were identified by co-elution on h.p.l.c. with authentic standards and by g.l.c.-electron impact mass spectrometry of their trimethylsilyl (TMS) derivatives. 2. Five metabolites of buspirone were identified in the microsomal incubates and seven in the hepatocyte incubates. The major metabolites arose from aromatic hydroxylation at C-5, N-dealkylation of the butyl chain, and hydroxylation at C-6' and C-3' on the azaspirodecanedione moiety. 3. Metabolism of buspirone by rat liver microsomes was NADPH-dependent and was completely inhibited by cytochrome P-450 inhibitors SKF-525A and metyrapone. 4. Metabolites of buspirone formed in vitro were good predictors of the primary metabolites formed in vivo. 5. Hepatocytes and phenobarbital-induced rat liver microsomes were better predictors of in vivo metabolism of buspirone than non-induced rat liver microsomes. These in vitro systems should provide excellent models for studying the metabolism of other azaspirodecanedione-containing drugs.

The effect of several neuromodulators (carbachol (CCh), serotonin (5-HT), noradrenaline (NE), and dopamine (DA)) on the buy buspar online climbing fiber (CF)-induced [Ca(2+)](i) increase in the dendrites of cerebellar Purkinje cells was examined in slices from the rat cerebellum. Purkinje cells were filled with the Ca(2+) indicator bis-fura-2 with patch electrodes on the soma. [Ca(2+)](i) changes were measured from regions of interest in the dendrites with a high speed camera. Changes evoked by one or three responses were measured in control conditions and with neuromodulators added to the bath. None of these four classic modulators caused a significant change in the CF-induced [Ca(2+)](i) amplitude. Buspirone, a partial 5-HT(1A) agonist and a weak DA receptor antagonist caused a small (10-15%) reduction in the response.

The effects of intragastric administration of the prototypical benzodiazepine (BDZ) anxiolytic drug chlordiazepoxide (CDP) and the non-BDZ anxiolytic agent buspirone (BUSP) on basal and stress-elevated plasma noradrenaline (NA), adrenaline (A) and corticosterone (CS) contents were investigated. Acute dosing of CDP (1-27 mg/kg) produced dose-related increases in basal CS secretion but was without effect on basal NA levels. The high dose of CDP caused a slight short-term A increase. Dose-dependent increases in plasma A, NA and CS contents were observed after acute treatment with BUSP (2 and 20 mg/kg). A medium dose of CDP (9 mg/kg) attenuated the stress-induced CS and A elevations. High doses of CDP that elevated basal CS release prevented a further increase of CS by stress and inhibited the NA and A response to stress buy buspar online . BUSP (2 and 20 mg/kg) was not effective in decreasing the stress-elicited rise of CS, NA or A. Conversely, the 20 mg/kg dose of BUSP enhanced the stress-induced A response. Repeated administration of CDP (9 mg/kg/day for six days) produced tolerance to the elevation of basal CS triggered by acute CDP treatment, but increased the efficacy of the drug's CS and A attenuating action in stressed rats. Repeated administration of BUSP (2 mg/kg/day for six days) also produced tolerance to the acute BUSP-induced effect on basal CS release, but did not affect the stress-induced CS, NA and A responses. It is concluded that the clinically effective anxiolytic BUSP does not have the BDZ-like property to inhibit stress-induced elevations in CS, NA and A. Furthermore, the present data support other evidence that activation of 5-HT1A receptor mechanisms increases plasma catecholamine and corticosterone concentrations.

We compared ventilatory effects of the nonsedating anxiolytic buspirone with those of the sedating anxiolytic diazepam in nine normal men. Resting ventilatory parameters and ventilatory responses to CO2 rebreathing and inspiratory threshold loading were measured buy buspar online before and after placebo, diazepam, and buspirone. Placebo had no ventilatory effects. Diazepam had no effect on resting ventilation but depressed response to CO2. Buspirone had no effect on resting ventilation or CO2 response. During loading, buspirone did not alter the augmentation of mouth pressure; diazepam produced a trend toward less augmentation. Both anxiolytics altered the load compensation response for the group; in particular, an increase in ventilation during loading (seen in three of nine subjects) was suppressed by drug administration. Diazepam also markedly depressed one subject's loaded ventilation below unloaded ventilation. In summary, buspirone did not cause the depression of respiratory center chemosensitivity that was seen with diazepam and produced less depression of load compensation in normal subjects. This suggests that it may be a safer anxiolytic in patients with lung disease.

Serotonergic (5-HT) drugs are widely used Imitrex Drug Interactions in the clinical management of mood and anxiety disorders. However, it is reported that acute 5-HT treatment elicits anxiogenic-like behavior. Interestingly, the periaqueductal gray (PAG), a midbrain structure which regulates anxiety behavior - has robust 5-HT fibers and reciprocal connections with the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Although the HPA axis and the 5-HT system are well investigated, the relationship between the stress hormones induced by 5-HT drug treatment and the PAG neural correlates of the behavior remain largely unknown. In this study, the effects of acute and chronic treatments with buspirone (BUSP) and escitalopram (ESCIT) on anxiety-related behaviors were tested in an open-field (OF). The treatment effects on PAG c-Fos immunoreactivity (c-Fos-ir) and corticosterone (CORT) concentration were measured in order to determine the neural-endocrine correlates of anxiety-related behaviors and drug treatments. Our results demonstrate that acute BUSP and ESCIT treatments induced anxiogenic behaviors with elevation of CORT compared to the baseline. A decrease of c-Fos-ir was found in the dorsomedial PAG region of both the treatment groups. Correlation analysis showed that the CORT were not associated with the OF anxiogenic behavior and PAG c-Fos-ir. No significant differences were found in behaviors and CORT after chronic treatment. In conclusion, acute BUSP and ESCIT treatments elicited anxiogenic response with activation of the HPA axis and reduction of c-Fos-ir in the dorsomedial PAG. Although no correlation was found between the stress hormone and the PAG c-Fos-ir, this does not imply the lack of cause-and-effect relationship between neuroendocrine effects and PAG function in anxiety responses. These correlation studies suggest that the regulation of 5-HT system was probably disrupted by acute 5-HT treatment.

The transdermal delivery of buspirone hydrochloride across hairless mouse skin and the combined effect of iontophoresis and terpene enhancers were evaluated in vitro using Franz diffusion cells. Iontophoretic delivery was optimized by evaluating the effect of drug concentration, current density, and pH of the vehicle solution. Increasing the current density from 0.05 to 0.1 mA/cm2 resulted in doubling of the iontophoretic flux of buspirone hydrochloride, while increasing drug concentration from 1% to 2% had no effect on flux. Using phosphate buffer to adjust the pH of the drug solution decreased the buspirone hydrochloride iontophoretic flux relative to water solutions. Incorporating buspirone hydrochloride into ethanol:water (50:50 vol/vol) based gel formulations using carboxymethylcellulose and hydroxypropylmethylcellulose had no effect on iontophoretic delivery. Incorporation of three terpene enhancers (menthol Lipitor 5 Mg , cineole, and terpineol) into the gel resulted in a synergistic effect when combined with iontophoresis. Menthol was the most active enhancer, and when combined with iontophoresis it was possible to deliver 10 mg/cm2/day of buspirone hydrochloride.

The novel anxiolytic drug, buspirone, reverses catalepsy induced by haloperidol. A series of aryl-piperazine analogues of buspirone and other 5-hydroxytryptaminergic agonists were tested for their ability to reverse haloperidol induced catalepsy. Those drugs with strong affinity for 5-hydroxytryptamine1a receptors were able to reverse catalepsy. Drugs with affinity for other 5-HT receptors or weak affinity were ineffective. However, inhibition of postsynaptic 5-HT receptors neither inhibited nor potentiated reversal of catalepsy and leaves open the question Prandin Renal Dosing as to the site or mechanism for this effect.

There is considerable interest in blocking the dopamine D3 receptor (DRD3) versus the D2 receptor (DRD2) to treat drug addiction. However, there are currently no selective DRD3 antagonists available in the clinic. The anxiolytic drug buspirone has been proposed as a potential strategy as findings suggest that this drug has high in vitro affinity for DRD3, binds to DRD3 in brain of living non-human primate, and also disrupts psychostimulant self-administration in preclinical models. No study has explored the occupancy of DRD3 by buspirone in humans. Here, we used positron emission tomography ( Calan Tab PET) and the D3-preferring probe, [(11)C]-(+)-PHNO, to test the hypothesis that buspirone will occupy (decreases [(11)C]-(+)-PHNO binding) the DRD3 more readily than the DRD2. Eight healthy participants underwent [(11)C]-(+)-PHNO scans after single oral dose administration of placebo and 30, 60, and 120 mg of buspirone in a single-blind within-subjects design. [(11)C]-(+)-PHNO binding in DRD2- and DRD3-rich areas was decreased by the highest (60-120 mg), but not the lowest (30 mg), doses of buspirone. The maximal occupancy obtained was ~25% in both areas. Plasma levels of prolactin (a DRD2 marker) correlated with percentage occupancy after orally administered buspirone. Self-reported dizziness and drowsiness increased after buspirone but that did not correlate with receptor occupancy in any region. Overall, the modest occupancy of DRD2 and DRD3 even at high acute doses of buspirone, yielding high levels of metabolites, suggests that buspirone may not be a good drug to preferentially block DRD3 in humans.

Tilia species are well known around the world for their properties in traditional medicine. Antinociceptive activity of hexane, methanol and aqueous extracts from Tilia americana var. mexicana inflorescences was evaluated in the pain-induced Priligy Daily Dosage functional impairment model in rats (PIFIR). A preliminar 300 mg/kg dosage of aqueous extracts i.p., but not the same dose of methanol or hexane extract, produced an antinociceptive response in rats similar to that of tramadol (17.8 mg/kg i.p.). A dose-response curve from aqueous extract allowed the determination of ED(50) = 364.97 mg/kg in comparison to ED(50) = 10.35 mg/kg for tramadol in this model. A previous HPLC-DAD analysis corroborated by an HPLC-MS technique in this study demonstrated the flavonoid composition in this Tilia aqueous extract revealing the presence of glycosides mainly derived from quercetin. Thus, Tilia aqueous extract and quercetin were tested at 30 and/or 100 mg/kg dosages i.p. in the PIFIR and formalin models producing a significant and dose-dependent antinociceptive response resembling that produced by a total and a partial agonist of 5-HT(1A) receptors like 8-OH-DPAT (0.1 mg/kg, s.c.) and buspirone (5 mg/kg, i.p.), respectively. In all the treatments, antinociceptive response was inhibited in the presence of WAY 100635 (0.12 mg/kg, i.p.). Our results support the analgesic activity of T. americana var. mexicana inflorescences attributed by folk medicine; they also indicate that quercetin is partly responsible for this pharmacological activity that is likely mediated by serotonin 5-HT(1A) receptors.

Dextromethorphan, a noncompetitive blocker of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) type of glutamate receptor, at 45, 60 and 75 mg/kg, ip doses induced a behavioural syndrome characterised by reciprocal forepaw treading, lateral head-weaving, hind-limb abduction and flat body posture. Such type of behavioural syndrome is induced by 8-hydroxy-2- (di-n-propylamino) tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) by directly stimulating the central postsynaptic 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin) receptors of the 5-HT1A type. Pretreatment with buspirone (5, 10 mg/kg, ip) and l-propranolol (10, 20 mg/kg, ip) antagonised the behavioural syndrome induced by 8-OH-DPAT and dextromethorphan. Pretreatment with p-chlorophenylalanine (100 mg/kg/day x 4 days) antagonised the behavioural syndrome induced by dextromethorphan and dexfenfluramine but had no significant effect Prednisone Cost on 8-OH-DPAT induced behavioural syndrome. This indicates that dextromethorphan induces the behavioural syndrome by releasing 5-HT from serotonergic neurons with resultant activation of the postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors by the released 5-HT. Pretreatment with fluoxetine (10 mg/kg, ip) significantly potentiated the behavioural syndrome induced by dextromethorphan and 5-hydroxytryptophan but significantly antagonised dexfenfluramine induced behavioural syndrome. This indicates that dextromethorphan releases 5-HT by a mechanism which differs from that of dexfenfluramine. Dextromethorphan may be releasing 5-HT by blocking the NMDA receptors and thereby counteracting the inhibitory influence of l-glutamate on 5-HT release.

A 12-month, multicenter, open-label study was conducted to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of the new nonbenzodiazepine anxiolytic buspirone. The study population consisted of 700 patients with DSM-III generalized anxiety disorder who ranged in age from 16 to 84 years. Ninety-two percent had symptoms of anxiety that had persisted for Strattera Highest Dose 3 months or longer. According to the Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety, the Physician Global Opinion of Improvement, and the Patient Opinion of Improvement, the use of buspirone resulted in a significant reduction in anxiety. The degree of this improvement correlated with the duration of drug use. After the third month of therapy, there was an extremely low incidence of patient discontinuation due to side effects or insufficient improvement. Adverse effects were typical of those observed in other double-blind, placebo-controlled studies that compared buspirone with benzodiazepines. Overall, buspirone was well tolerated for maintenance therapy.

Considerable experimental evidence suggests that central dopaminergic (DA) transmission is under serotonergic (5-HTergic) modulation. For instance, neuroleptic-induced catalepsy (NIC) in rodents, a behavior mainly due to blockade of DA receptors in the striatum, can be affected by 5-HTergic manipulation. It has been shown that ligands of 5-HT1A receptors (e.g. buspirone, gepirone) reduce NIC, while 5-HT2 receptor antagonists (e.g. ritanserin) do not affect this phenomenon. However, the role of 5-HT2 receptors in the modulation of NIC is still controversial and there is evidence from behavioral models other than NIC suggesting the existence of functional interaction between the two subtypes of 5-HT receptors. The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of ICI 170,809 (a selective 5-HT2 receptor antagonist) on NIC and to test the possible effect of this drug on the anticataleptic effect of gepirone (GP). Male Wistar rats weighing 300-350 g were used, and each animal (7 per group, 4 groups) was used only once. Catalepsy was induced with haloperidol (H; 1 mg/kg, i.p.) and measured at 30-min intervals by means of a bar test. Animals received either ICI 170,809 (3 mg/kg, i.p.) or 0.9% saline (SL; 0.8 ml, i.p.) 30 min before H. At 110 min after H, the rats received GP (1 mg/kg, i.p.) or SL (0.8 ml, i.p Kemadrin Drug .). GP significantly attenuated NIC (e.g. 739 +/- 106 s vs 1009 +/- 85 s for controls, at 150 min after H), while ICI 170,809 did not significantly affect the phenomenon (e.g. 978 +/-89 s vs 1009 +/- 85 s for controls, at 150 min after H). Pretreatment with ICI 170,809 did not significantly modify the anticataleptic effect of GP (e.g. 617 +/- 90 s vs 739 +/- 106 s for SL-pretreated animals, at 150 min after H). These results confirm reports of the anticataleptic effect of GP and the lack of effect of 5-HT2 receptor antagonists on NIC. Moreover, these data also suggest the absence of functional interactions between central 5-HT1A and 5-HT2 receptors in this model of DA transmission.

A series of aminoalkylderivatives of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carboline-1-spiro-4'-N'-benzylpiperidine were synthesized by means of chloroacetylation of the title compound and substitution of chlorine atom with various heterocyclic amines in DMSO, followed by LAH reduction of the carbonyl group. Of the ten tested compounds (4a-4e, 5a-5e), compound 5d given ip, but not orally, showed an anxiolytic activity in the four-plate test in mice and in the conflict test in rats. Compound 5d is devoid of an anticonvulsant or neurotoxic action. The activity of Zoloft Overdose Mg compound 5d resembles this of buspirone.

A retrospective pilot study was conducted to determine whether divalproex sodium was effective in treating core dimensions and associated features of autism. Fourteen patients who met DSM-IV criteria for autism, Asperger's disorder, or pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified, both with and without a history of seizure disorders or EEG abnormalities, were openly treated with divalproex sodium. Improvement was assessed via the Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement scale.

Buspirone has previously been reported to be effective in the augmentation of the antidepressant effect of serotonin selective re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in depressed outpatients. We report on buspirone augmentation of SSRIs in severe treatment-refractory depression in inpatients.

We postulate that inadvertent weight loss may be as powerful a trigger as intentional dieting to initiating anorexia nervosa in predisposed individuals; self-induced weight loss may not be a necessary precursor to anorexia nervosa.

Pretreatment of nine healthy subjects with the non-selective 5-HT receptor antagonist, metergoline (4 mg), abolished the increase in plasma prolactin produced by the anxiolytic drug, buspirone (15 mg). While these findings are consistent with a role for 5-HT receptors in the stimulatory effect of buspirone on plasma prolactin, a dopaminergic mechanism cannot be excluded by the present data.

Anxiety disorders are among the most prevalent psychiatric disorders, but they represent a particular challenge for treatment. The standard first-line treatments, including antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and buspirone, result in significant response rates for a majority of patients; however, unfavorable side effect profiles or risk for dependency for particular agents might limit their use by anxious patients, who often have low thresholds for medication discontinuation. Novel pharmacologic agents that modulate particular receptors, ion channels, or transporters relevant to glutamatergic neurotransmission may represent a new approach to the treatment of anxiety disorders, with generally more favorable side effect profiles. Although the role of glutamate in the pathophysiology of anxiety disorders is still being elucidated, the use of these agents in treatment of anxiety disorders and commonly comorbid conditions such as substance abuse and mood disorders will continue to increase.
