> Guanfacine and memantine have different mechanisms.
> Guanfacine is mostly to lower adrenaline release (which can reduce anxiety). Memantine is a NMDA antagonist which modulates glutamate release. It can have antidepressant / antianxiety effects.
> Guanfacine would likely do little / nothing for depression. Its actions are actually opposite to some antidepressants like mirtazapine (which enhances norepinephrine release via opposite activity at the same receptor).
> Linkadge
both guanfacine and memantine decrease amygdala acitivity.
