Pharmachologic effect

Pharmacological action - antidepressant, timoleptic.

Selectively inhibits reverse neuronal capture of serotonin in the brain, increases its content in the synaptic cleft, and enhances the excitation of serotonergic postsynaptic receptors.


Well absorbed. Eating does not affect systemic bioavailability. Cmax in blood plasma is reached after 4-8 hours. The degree of binding to proteins is about 95%. It is converted in the liver into an active metabolite, norfluoxetine, which is then transformed into inactive metabolites (excreted by the kidneys). T1 / 2 fluoxetine - 4-6 days, norfluoxetine - 4-16 days. With liver cirrhosis or with cytochrome deficiency, P450 T1 / 2 may increase, leading to cumulation (with prolonged admission). The distribution kinetics is nonlinear for fluoxetine; linear - for norfluoxetine.
