Abstract

There are reports availbale on the anticonvulsant action of acorus calamus root powder when administered to epileptic patients orally. In the present study, the effect of oral administration of crude aqueous paste of A, calamus root on the biogenic amines and their matabolites in the brain and urine of rats was studied. The rats were also subjected to maximum electric-shock (MES)-induced convulsions in order to demonstrate the protective nature of the drug against convulsions. The results indicated that feeding crude aqueous acorus paste to the rats lead to conditions that provided no suitable protection againtst MES induced convulsions.
