Which among the following is NOT an SSRI?
CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. C, Duloxetine
Duloxetine is an SNRI.
Which of the following SSRI has the longest half life?
CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. A, Fluoxetine
The t1/2 of Fluoxetine is 48- 72hrs. Fluoxetine is metabolized to an active product, norfluoxetine, which may have plasma concentrations greater than those of fluoxetine. The elimination half-life of norfluoxetine is about 3 times longer than fluoxetine and contributes to the longest half-life of all the SSRIs.
Fluoxetine and paroxetine are potent inhibitors of the CYP2D6 isoenzyme, and this contributes to potential drug interactions.
Which of the following antidepressant medication have both serotonergic and noradrenergic adverse effects?
CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. C, Venlafaxine
Venlafaxine is an SNRI with both serotonergic and nor-adrenergic adverse effects such as increased blood pressure and heart rate, and CNS activation, such as insomnia, anxiety, and agitation. Venlafaxine and Duloxetine are commonly used SNRIs.
A dose-related increase in blood pressure has been seen more commonly with the immediate-release form of venlafaxine than with other SNRIs. Duloxetine is rarely associated with hepatic toxicity in patients with a history of liver damage.
