Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Methaqualone



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

We have previously shown that residues of some hypnotic drugs persist in the body for up to a week after a single therapeutic dose and have demonstrated that alcohol decreases the elimination rate of methaqualone even when taken 2 or 3 days after the drug.

Sequence variation within serotonin system genes, for example, a repeat polymorphism in the transcriptional control region of the monoamine oxidase gene MAOA‐LPR ), increases the propensity for adolescent males to consume alcohol.

Genetic biomarkers included neurotransmitter pathways associated with … for dopaminergic (e.g., DRD2, MAOA , and COMT), serotoninergic (e.g., HTR3A, HTR1B, HTR3B, and SLC6A4), GABAergic (e.g., GABRA1, GABRA2, and GABRG1), glutaminergic (…, and GRIN2C) and opioid (e.g., OPRM1, OPRD1, and OPRK1) pathways which presumably impact reinforcing properties of alcohol.

Analysis of single psychoactive drug cases and single-drug-plus-ethanol cases shows that, in the presence of ethanol , the toxic blood concentration of imipramine, amytriptyline, meprobamate, thioridazine, morphine, propoxyphene, methaqualone , and all barbiturates was decreased by an average of 50%.

Treatment with phenobarbital (10 mg/kg) or methaqualone (50 mg/kg) or lithium (4 meq/kg) prolonged the narcosis induced by ethanol (5 g/kg) by 45, 269 and 107% respectively.

The presence and mechanism of synergism of action between ethanol and amylobarbitone, phenobarbitone or methaqualone was determined by application of simple pharmacokinetic models to log dose-response curves and plasma concentration-time curves for the hypnotics alone or when ethanol was given concurrently.

Ethanol treatment resulted in decreased 5-HT concentrations in human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neuron culture media, and the downregulation of gene expression of TSPAN5, DDC, MAOA , MAOB, TPH1, and TPH2 in those cells.
