Doxepin is an antidepressant with H2 antagonist properties. Does it have GI effects?


Doxepin is an antidepressant with H2 antagonist properties. Does it have GI effects?
H2 antagonism reduces gastric acid secretion. Zantac, Tagamet, and a couple others are used to treat heartburn.

Does doxepin’s H2 antagonism reduce gastric acid secretion in a similar way? Would it make for an effective heartburn medication?

Best answer(s):

Answer by John de Witt
Yes, it could be used to treat ulcers, but it isn’t good for GERD because of its anticholinergic properties, so it may make heartburn worse instead of better. There’s little reason to use it for that purpose at any rate, simply because of the better alternatives you listed.

How does the molecular structure for Paroxetine lead to its physical and chemical properties?


Question by heyy: How does the molecular structure for Paroxetine lead to its physical and chemical properties?

Best answer:

Answer by xener70
The efficacy of paroxetine in the treatment of major depressive disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder (PD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is presumed to be linked to potentiation of serotonergic activity in the central nervous system resulting from inhibition of neuronal reuptake of serotonin (5-hydroxy-tryptamine 5-HT). Studies at clinically relevant doses in humans have demonstrated that paroxetine blocks the uptake of serotonin into human platelets. In vitro studies in animals also suggest that paroxetine is a potent and highly selective inhibitor of neuronal serotonin reuptake and has only very weak effects on norepinephrine and dopamine neuronal reuptake. In vitro radioligand binding studies indicate that paroxetine has little affinity for muscarinic, alpha1-, alpha2-, beta-adrenergic-, dopamine (D2)-, 5-HT1-, 5-HT2-, and histamine (H1)-receptors; antagonism of muscarinic, histaminergic, and alpha1-adrenergic receptors has been associated with various anticholinergic, sedative, and cardiovascular effects for other psychotropic drugs.

Prozestra Sales Skyrocket on Reports of Antidepressant Properties of Estrogen


Manalapan, NJ (PRWEB) January 1, 2010

Pharmaxa Labs’ best-selling, all-natural estrogen cream, Prozestra, is experiencing a huge influx in sales as more medical experts, researchers and institutions unveil their findings about how the lack of estrogen contributes to depression in menopausal women, and that by merely increasing estrogen levels in such affected persons, they can easily alleviate such associated symptoms of depression.

In a mid-December, 2009 press release that was distributed on the popular online news medium, Webwire.com – in a release that was entitled: “Could Estrogen Be the Cure for Female Depression?” – the press release offers some expert advice from Uzzi Reiss, M.D., OB/GYN, who advises that there are many menopausal symptoms that are associated with estrogen deficiency in women.

The press release quotes the medical professional as stating,

“Estrogen deficiency causes depression,” says Uzzi Reiss, M.D., OB/GYN, author of The Natural Superwoman. “When estrogen levels dip down at any stage of life or as a consequence of the natural fluctuation of their monthly cycles, many women often report they feel depressed, flat, uninspired, and hopeless.” Dr. Uzzi goes on to say, “Unfortunately, it is far more common for a woman to receive a quick prescription for antidepressants than a suggestion that she address her estrogen deficiency.”

In addition to getting some expert advice from a seasoned, resident doctor that has years of experience with treating menopausal women, the press release also went on to quote author, nutritionist, freelance writer, and medical researcher, Autumn E.

Who, as the press release cites, says that,

“She endured terrible premenstrual depression for many years before she learned she was estrogen deficient. Since discovering the magical powers of bioidentical hormones, she is a new woman and can confidently say it literally saved her life”

(Source: Internet, 2009; http://www.webwire.com/ViewPressRel.asp?aId=109692.)

Prozestra spokesperson, Cary Johnson, explains that these findings are really nothing new, and are not surprising to her in the least.

“For years doctors have agreed that estrogen deficiency in menopausal women contributes to depression,” Johnson says. “However, the biggest mistake that has been made is in the ways that many doctors choose to correct these symptoms–by using antidepressants which do nothing to increase estrogen levels–as opposed to targeting the core of the problem: increasing estrogen levels safely and naturally by using safe and scientifically-proven, all-natural estrogen delivery creams, like Prozestra.”

Prozestra natural progesterone cream is lightly dabbed and massaged twice daily to any of the following areas of the body: hands, belly, inner arms, neck, face, thighs, buttocks and breasts, until fully absorbed, alternating application sites with usage, as desired.

Most users will see and feel noticeable results from using Prozestra natural progesterone cream within 2-6 weeks of daily usage, when used as directed.

This product works best when combined with Pharmaxa Labs’ all-natural menopause supplement, Menoquil.
