The ability of haloperidol (0.1 mg/kg) to reduce the amphetamine-induced (2 and 5 mg/kg) increase in ascorbic and uric acid in anterior caudate and in nucleus accumbens was tested using voltammetry in vivo. In both areas, haloperidol reduced the amphetamine-induced increase in uric acid. In both areas, haloperidol only marginally affected the amphetamine-induced increase in ascorbic acid. Amphetamine-induced increases in uric acid were more nearly dose-related than changes in ascorbic acid. Of the two compounds, uric acid seems more likely to be associated with dopamine.
