Antidepressants and myoclonus: case report

, : Antidepressants and myoclonus: case report. Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 46(7): 284-287

Myoclonus is a movement disorder of various etiologies. An alteration in CNS serotonin activity is hypothesized to be the underlying mechanism for several myoclonic syndromes. Myoclonus has been reported as a side effect of antidepressants, and the serotonin hypothesis has been advanced to include this syndrome. A case is reported of myoclonus induced by an antidepressant purported to have no effect on serotonin activity.

Fluoroaluminates are thought to mimic the gamma-phosphate of GTP and thus, together with GDP, perturb the functioning of heterotrimeric GTP-binding G-proteins. Here we show they do inhibit the ribosome-stimulated GTPase activity of EF-G from Esche...
