Please explain agomelatine action on 5HT?

Posted by Franz on March 4, 2011, at 10:21:36

Hello, Doc suggested switching from escitalopram 10 mg to agomelatine.

It is very expensive so I have to evaluate it.

As I understand it enhances melatonin "reception" or sensitivity. When I used melatonin to sleep I had nightmares. Will this happen with agomelatine?

The supposed (I read articles negating this) 5-HT2C receptor antagonism affects serotonin?. How does this compare to escitalopram. Can this also have an anti obsessive effect?

Is the structure of agomelatine similar to tianeptine?

Thanks and sorry for all the quesations.
