Abstinence from alcohol for 2 weeks (day 14) resulted in a decrease in the number of 5-HT uptake sites labelled with [3H]paroxetine compared to normal values, together with a significant decrease in the number of 5-HT2A binding sites.
Alcohol misuse was found to be associated with an increased number and a lower affinity of [3H]paroxetine binding in comparison to the control values.
