In rats allowed access to a 35% sucrose solution, following a 4-h period of food and water deprivation, an initial period of sucrose consumption was followed by a short period of grooming and exploratory behaviour, later superseded by resting. This "behavioural satiety sequence" was advanced in time by the 5-HT uptake inhibitors femoxetine and paroxetine and by the 5-HT1A/Bagonist eltoprazine at anorectic and subanorectic doses. These effects, which are similar to those previously observed with another 5-HT uptake inhibitor, fluoxetine, are compatible with an increase in postprandial satiety. © 1992.
