Treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and related neuropsychiatric disorders

Treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and related neuropsychiatric disorders

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1258(3), May 21

The present invention describes a novel treatment for neuropsychiatric disorders, including anxiety disorders, mood disorders, psychotic disorders, somatoform disorders, and neuropsychiatric symptoms resulting from movement disorders. The treatment of the present invention utilizes any agent that simultaneously act as NMDA-type glutamate receptor antagonists and GABA-A receptor agonists. Preferably these two activities are characteristic of a single agent, for example acamprosate (calcium N-acetylhomotaurinate). Alternatively, separate agents having these activities can be combined as a compound or mixture and thereby administered together. The invention also provides for a third agent that acts as a non-competitive NMDA-receptor blocking agent or ion channel blocker, that augments the effect of the primary treatment. A particularly preferred ion channel blocking agent is magnesium.
