Abstract

The administration of amphetamine to rats pretreated with iprindole to inhibit the metabolism of amphetamine results in a long-lasting depletion of striatal dopamine and its metabolites, DOPAC and HVA. Pretreatment with MK801, a noncompetitive antagonist of the NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) subclass of excitatory amino acid receptors, antagonized the depletion of striatal dopamine, DOPAC and HVA 3 days after a single dose of amphetamine in iprindole-treated rats. MK801 pretreatment was effective up to 4 hours but not at 8 or 24 hours in preventing amphetamine effects on striatal dopamine, DOPAC and HVA.
