In the present case the reason for symptoms was detected only after 14 months of ineffective therapies and diagnostic procedures. The coccygeal pain was eliminat...

This study examined the antinociceptive and antidepressant-like effects of imidazoline I2 receptor (I2R) agonists in a reserpine-induced model of fibromyalgia in rats. Rats were treated for 3 days with vehicle or reserpine. The von Frey filament test was used to assess the antinociceptive effects of I2 receptor agonists, and the forced swim test was used to assess the antidepressant-like effects of these drugs. 2-BFI (3.2–10 mg/kg, intraperitoneally), phenyzoline (17.8–56 mg/kg, intraperitoneally), and CR4056 (3.2–10 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) all dose-dependently produced significant ...
