Although all ssri drugs have the same mechanism of action, each ssri has slightly different pharmacological and pharmacokinetic characteristics this leads to differences among the ssris in their half-lives, clinical activity, side effects, and drug interactions side-effect profile of fluoxetine in comparison with other ssris, tricyclic. Fluoxetine, also known by trade names prozac and sarafem among others, is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (ssri) class  it is used for the treatment of major depressive disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder (ocd), bulimia nervosa, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorderit may decrease the risk of suicide in those over the age of 65. The development of newer classes of antidepressants and second-generation antiepileptic drugs has created unprecedented opportunities for the treatment of chronic pain.
As is the case with the enantiomers of citalopram and fluoxetine, there is often limited data on their relative pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics to answer these questions a summary of that data for these two ssris follows.

Fluoxetine is sold in capsules containing 10, 20, 40 or 90 mg of active ingredient, in tablets containing 10 mg, or in an oral solution with concentration of 20 mg/5 ml dosages in the range of 20-60 mg per day are standard, with 80 mg considered a maximum.
Pharmacodynamics - the mechanism of action is similar to ergotamine tartrate (eg stimulation of 5ht1 receptors), and probably involves direct vasoconstriction of the dilated intracranial arteries leading to decreased. The mechanism of action of ssris this presentation is divided in three sections the first section is a brief overview of the monoamine theory of depression and its limitations. Abstract mood disorders and insomnia are often comorbid conditions, sharing a complex and bi-directional relationship complicating the situation, mood stabilizers can disrupt sleep in a variety of different ways depending on a drug’s mechanism of action, dosage level, and timing of administration.
Unit iii: how drugs work all p450 enzymes are similar in structure and mechanism of action 3a4 is the most abundant in the human liver and is known to metabolize the majority of drugs whose biotransformation is presently known (clomipramine, amitriptyline, doxepin, dothiepin, but not secondary amines nortriptyline or desipramine) and. Amitriptyline, sold under the brand name elavil among others, is a medicine primarily used to treat a number of mental illnesses these include major depressive disorder and anxiety disorders , and less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and bipolar disorder. Despite sharing a similar mechanism of action, the ssris are a heterogeneous group of compounds, which can be distinguished from one another pharmacokinetically, as shown on this slide drugs with longer half-lives, such as fluoxetine, citalopram, and escitalopram are likely to have fewer discontinuation symptoms if doses are missed or therapy.

Pharmacology: mechanism of action: agomelatine is a melatonergic agonist (mt 1 and mt 2 receptors) and 5-ht 2c antagonist binding studies indicate that agomelatine has no effect on monoamine uptake and no affinity for: α-, β-adrenergic, histaminergic, cholinergic, dopaminergic and benzodiazepine receptors. Figure 31 — generic curve of a drug’s concentration-dependent effect on specific soa the effect (ie, activation or inhibition) of the drug on the site of action (soa) is the drug’s mechanism of action (moa.

A comparison with conventional antidepressants dothiepin, fluoxetine, moclo-bemide and mirtazapine although hypericum was associated with fewer and 12 mechanisms of action 121 dothiepin dothiepin is a tca that is structurally related to amitriptyline its antidepressant activity is the re. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (citalopram, escitalopram, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, paroxetine, and sertraline) are structurally diverse but share a common mechanism of action efficacy both tcas and ssris are effective for the treatment of depression.
