Both the anticonvulsant and sedative effects of diazepam (5 mg/kg) were reversed by subsequent administration of the suggested specific benzodiazepine antagonist Ro 15-1788. In contrast neither the seizure threshold raising or sedative effect of melatonin (200 mg/kg) was reversed by Ro 15-1788. Ro 15-1788 had no effect on the convulsant action of the benzodiazepine Ro 05-3663. These data therefore argue against the suggestion that melatonin produces its sedative and anticonvulsant effects in ...Expand abstract
