Topic: Dopaminergics


In the News (Thu 23 May 19)

  
  Anaesthesia UK : Anti-dopaminergics
Mode of action: Antiemetic effects are due to central dopaminergic blockade.
Mode of action: Antagonism of peripheral dopaminergic D2 receptors.
Antiemetic effects possibly mediated by central dopaminergic (D2) blockade and a decrease in sensitivity of visceral nerves supplying afferents to the vomiting centre.

  Ejaculations with tongkat ali   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Dopaminergics work on libido, not on penile vascular parameters.
The effect of dopaminergics is to cause a much-prolonged excitatory phase, on which one can get lost for up to half an hour.
On most dopaminergics, ejaculatory support wanes after just two or three usages (while the libido support lasts for at least ten times as many applications).

 Dopamine and Depression
We reviewed evidence for the role of dopaminergic dysfunction in depression, the use of dopaminergic agents as antidepressants, and the use of dopaminergic agents and stimulants as antidepressant adjuncts.
Dopamine may be part of the pathophysiology of depression for a subset of patients.
When used with caution and an appreciation of the potential risk of abuse, dopaminergic agents and stimulants may be useful for patients refractory to antidepressants alone.

 Selegiline ( l-deprenyl )
We tend to lose perhaps 13% a decade in adult life.
Taken at MAO-B-selective dosages, selegiline is typically less effective as a mood-brightener than other dopaminergics such as amineptine (Survector).
Taken at unselective dosages of 20mg a day or more, selegiline is typically an effective, well-tolerated antidepressant.

The problem with the dopaminergics is that they are currently frowned on by society as being "addictive", and are not actively marketed by the pharmaceutical industry.
Increasing dopaminergic activity by using dopaminergics is a powerful way by which to reduce anxiety, whether social or not.
As a result, lay people have been able to obtain their supplies of dopaminergics only by illicit means and not from the medical profession.

 strong desire | sexual action
As Jack raises the question of combining the tongkat ali with dopaminergics: I myself have tried it with cabergoline, pergolide, and bromocriptine.
Not only did the tongkat ali not add to the usual effect of the dopaminergics; it rather diminishes it.
I kinda like the idea of switching off the dopaminergics periodically, although I have not witnessed a deterioration in their effectiveness.

 Baylor Neurology Case of the Month   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
As might be expected from the locus of pathology (striatal involvement, rather than substantia nigra, resulting in loss of dopaminergic receptors), no medication, including dopaminergics, antidopaminergics, or antihistamines has had a consistent or lasting benefit.
Some patients have reported improvements in bradykinesia and tremor when given dopaminergic agents; anticholinergics and benzodiazepenes have had only a slight effect on the generalized dystonia.
The mainstay of treatment is physical therapy for improvement of gait and maintenance of range of motion.

 How does one treat the condition of "restless legs" (not the same as leg cramps)? - Answerbag.com
Generally, physicians choose from dopaminergics, benzodiazepines (central nervous system depressants), opioids, and anticonvulsants.
Dopaminergic agents, largely used to treat Parkinson's disease, have been shown to reduce RLS symptoms and PLMD and are considered the initial treatment of choice.
Good short-term results of treatment with levodopa plus carbidopa have been reported, although most patients eventually will develop augmentation, meaning that symptoms are reduced at night but begin to develop earlier in the day than usual.

 Neurological malignant syndrome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In most cases, the disorder develops within the first two weeks of treatment with the drug, although it may develop any time during the therapy period.
The syndrome can also occur in people taking drugs against anti-Parkinsonism (known as dopaminergics) if those drugs are discontinued abruptly.

 Leg Pain - Page 6
To treat restless leg syndrome, a common cause of leg pain, the FDA has approved one drug that was originally developed for Parkinson’s disease.
Other measures that may help, according to the National Institutes of Health, are restriction of caffeine, tobacco and alcohol, supplements to correct any mineral deficiencies, massage, heat therapy, cold therapy, opioids, central nervous system depressants (benzodiazepines) and dopaminergics.
In cases where leg pain is caused by bacterial, viral, fungal or other infections, the underlying cause is treated with the appropriate medication, such as antibiotics, antivirals or antifungals.

 Restless Legs Syndrome Information Page: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)
Taking a hot bath, massaging the legs, or using a heating pad or ice pack can help relieve symptoms in some patients.
Physicians also may suggest a variety of medications to treat RLS, including dopaminergics, benzodiazepines (central nervous system depressants), opioids, and anticonvulsants.
In 2005, ropinirole became the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration specifically for the treatment of moderate to severe RLS.

 What is Neuroleptic malignant Syndrome
However, neuroleptic malignant syndrome may develop any time during the therapy period.
It can also occur in people taking anti-Parkinsonism drugs known as dopaminergics if those drugs are discontinued abruptly.
Neuroleptic malignant syndrome is usually caused by negative reaction reaction to the use of almost any of a group of antipsychotic drugs or major tranquilizers.
