If the interpretation of the experi men t s described above is correct, it is difficult to believe that a deficiency of noradrenergic transmission is a cause for those symptoms of depressive illnesses that are ameliorated by imipramine. In fact this drug causes an attenuation of the signal amplification elicited by NE on the adenylate cyclase activity coupled to S-adrenergic recognition sites. Therefore, a long-term treatment with imipramine aggravates rather than relieves the symptoms of NE deficiency .
