Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor; antidepressant.

Fluoxetine hydrochloride is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor and functions as an antidepressant. This drug works at presynaptic terminals where it prevents the reuptake of serotonin, resulting in the accumulation of serotonin in extracellular fluid at synapses.

Packaging

10, 50 mg in poly bottle

Application

Fluoxetine hydrochloride has been used to study its effect on the binding ability of the radiopharmaceutical 123I-labeled 2-((2-((dimethylamino)methyl)phenyl)thio)-5-iodophenylamine ([123I]ADAM) to SERT (serotonin transporters) in mice. It has also been used for the chronic treatment of light deprived animals.
