Figure 4: Effects of the aqueous extract of A. multiflora stem bark or fluoxetine on the forced swimming test in rats. Animals were treated with the extract (150 mg/kg or 300 mg/kg, i.p.) or distilled water once a day for 7 days. In the positive control, fluoxetine (Flux) was given only once (10 mg/kg, i.p.) 30 min prior to the test. Each column represents the mean ± SEM of 6 animals. Data analysis was performed using Dunnett’s t-test, * ; ** significantly different from saline-treated animals.
