Adepress (Paroxetinum, Paroxetine) - an antidepressant. It is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) neurons in the brain, which determines its antidepressant action and effectiveness in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive (OCD) and panic disorder.
Paroxetine has low affinity for m-holinoretseptorami (possesses weak anticholinergic effects), α1-, α2- and β-adrenoceptors and for the dopamine (D2), 5HT1-like, 5HT2-like and histamine H1-receptors. Paroxetine does not violate psychomotor function and does not potentiate the inhibitory effect of ethanol on them.
According to the study of behavior and EEG paroxetine revealed weak activating properties when it is administered in doses higher than those required for inhibition of serotonin reuptake. In healthy volunteers, it does not cause a significant change in the level of blood pressure, heart rate and EEG.
