Aurorix general information

What is Aurorix used for?

Aurorix tablets 300mg are used to treat depression and symptoms of depressive illness, including anxiety, dysphoria (unpleasant or uncomfortable mood), loss of interest in usual activities, disturbed sleep, change in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty thinking or concentrating, and recurrent thoughts of suicide.  Aurorix tablets 300mg are also used to relieve symptoms associated with social phobia or social anxiety disorder, which is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people and can affect daily activities and relationships with others.  Social anxiety disorder can lead to physical symptoms including tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), gastrointestinal upset, nausea, dizziness, light-headedness and confusion. 

How does Aurorix work?

Aurorix tablets 300mg contain the benzamide derivative moclobemide, an antidepressant that acts as a short-acting, reversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase A (RIMA), the enzyme that metabolises and inactivates (by a process of deamination) neurotransmitters (brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate) in the brain.  There are two forms of monoamine oxidase; type A and type B.  Type A monoamine oxidase preferentially inactivates monoamine neurotransmitters which include norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin.  A chemical imbalance of brain neurotransmitters is thought to be one of the major causes of depression and other mood disorders, particularly a lack serotonin, which controls many body activities, including regulating mood.  Moclobemide in Aurorix tablets 300mg specifically inhibits type A monoamine oxidase, thereby increasing the concentration of the monoamine neurotransmitters outside the neurones (nerve cells) of the brain and making them available for longer so that nerve cells can continue to communicate with each other to stimulate nerve pathways that control mood.  This action of moclobemide restores the balance of neurotransmitters in brain, which helps relieve symptoms of depression and social anxiety disorder.  Moclobemide in Aurorix tablets 300mg does not have sedative properties, however, the quality of sleep associated with depression improves within days, without impairing alertness.
