Abstract

Two substances of the benzoquinolizine group have different effects on depletion of brain catecholamines. While tetrabenazine (intravenous) produces a decrease in the brain amine concentration, benzquinamide (intravenous, supplied by Pfizer Argentina, S.A.) produces a rise in the serotonin- and noradrenaline-level (5 HT: 0.65 γ/g; control: 0.57 and noradrenaline: 0.63 γ/g; control: 0.39).
