ACTION: SRT (Sertraline) has a potent and selective inhibiting action on CNS neuronal reuptake of 5-HT resulting in increased 5-HT concentrations at the synaptic clefts, leading to facilitation of its sustained activity at the postsynaptic receptor sites. It ultimately results in an improvement of depression. Reduction of serotonin turnover (in brain) by sertraline (SRT) is also another contributing fact implicated in its action. Its prolonged elimination T 1/2 (about 26 hours) offers a benefit of once daily administration.
SRT (sertraline) is slowly absorbed from the G.I. tract with break plasma concentrations occurring about 4.5 to 8.4 hours after ingestion. SRT is widely distributed throughout the body tissues and is about 98 % bound to plasma protein.
CATEGORY: Selective serotonin Reuptake inhibitor (SSRI); Antidepressant.
ACTION: S-VOCITA selectively inhibits CNS (central nervous system) neuronal re-uptake of serotonin (5-HT) and potentiates serotinergic activity.S-VOCITA has the highest affinity for the human serotonin transporter (SERT). In short, S-VOCITA works by boosting levels of serotonin one of the chief chemical messengers in the brain. The drug is a close chemical cousin of the antidepressant medication Citalopram. Other antidepressants that work by raising serotonin levels include Fluoxetine, Paroxetine and Sertaline.
CATEGORY: Serotonin Reuptake inhibitor, Antidepressant.
ACTION: It is a potent antidepressant with non-sedating properties. The anti depressant action of FLUMOD (Fluoxetine) is presumed to be linked to its inhibition of CNS neuronal uptake of Serotonin. FLUMOD has negligible binding to alpha 1- adrenergic receptors in comparison to trycyclic agents.
FLUMOD is a very effective antidepressant improves the symptoms of depression such as depressed mood, diminished interest in daily activities, weight gain, fatigue, diminished ability to think and concentrate.

Vitamin – A: The vitamins and their functions in brief are given below….
v A (Retinol)—Antixerophthalmia factor
v A 1 (Retinol 1) & A 2 (Retinol 2) --- Regeneration of visual purple, prevents night-blideness and keratinisations of epithelial tissues.
v Functions: 1. Essential for cell growth, 2. It is a component rhodopsin, hence essentioal for night vision (wide Rhodopsin). 3. Maintains the integrity and activity of epithelial tissues and glands. 4. It plays some part in protein synthesis. 5. Helps in keeping normal fertility.
v Daily requirement: 5000 I.U. for adults. For growing children and puberty, lactation and pregnancy, 6000-8000 I.U.
