It was observed that: 1) parachlorophenylalanine prolonged the anticataleptic action of ephedrine and, in part also, that … an anticataleptic effect and enhanced somewhat the same effect of both psychostimulating drugs used, 3) d, 1-tryptophan increased the intensity of catalepsy and reduced … the anticataleptic action of ephedrine and amphetamine.

L-Dopa, dl-amphetamine , alpha-methyl-Dopa, parachlorophenylalanine and serotonino-blockators--deseryl and lysergide--eliminate the tranquilizing action of tryptophane on emotional reactivity, decreasing serotonin accumulation and intensifying the formation of 5-oxyindolacetic acid.
