Re: Clorgyline is a imidazoline agonist

In addition to its effects on MAO, Clorgyline is a potent agonist at the imidazoline receptors. Imidazoline receptors are only partially characterized, but agonists at this receptor system appear to have significant antidepressant effects. Imidazoline receptors modulate the alpha-2 receptors and may also have an ability to regulate MAO levels (independent of the direct effects of clorgyline). Rapid acting antidepressants (like agmatine) are imidazoline agonists. It is entirely possible that this effects contributes to the antidepressant effects of clorgyline (and separates it from other MAOIs).
