Adenosine induced a concenration-dependent relaxation of the rat caecum preparation. Imipramine, trimipramine, desipramine, tranylcypromine and amitriptyline in a concentration of 20 mu M neither exhibited any effect per se nor modified adenosine-induced relaxation of the rat caecum preparation. These observations suggested that antidepressants do not cause a functionally important inhibition of adenosine uptake, and the reported interactions of antidepressants with adenosine in in vitro may be pharmacologically irrelevent.
