Does caffeine inhibit adh (vasopressin)?

Not really.: While caffeine may affect kidney blood flow, resulting in some adjustment in fluid balance indirectly, caffeine does not directly affect ADH (vasopressin) levels to any significant degree ...Read more

Does drinking alcohol increase dopamine?

Does drinking alcohol increase dopamine?

Alcohol, Dopamine: Alcohol increases the release of Dopamine in brain’s “reward center. By increasing Dopamine levels in the brain, alcohol tricks you into thinking that it’s actually making your feel great. The effect is that you keep drinking to get more Dopamine release, but at the same time you’re altering other brain chemicals that are enhancing feelings of depression. ...Read more

Can autoantibodies against glutamine synthetase and/or glutamate dehydrogenase cause glutamate metabolism disorders?

Can autoantibodies against glutamine synthetase and/or glutamate dehydrogenase cause glutamate metabolism disorders?

Still searching: Glutamine synthase is part of the glutamine synthetase family. Ammonia incorporation in animals occurs through the actions of glutamate dehydrogenase and glutamine synthase. Glutamate plays the central role in mammalian nitrogen flow, serving as both a nitrogen donor and nitrogen acceptor. I am unble to find references in my search so far as to autoantibodies to these but see comment. ...Read more

Does alcohol bind directly to GABA receptors or does i increase GABA release?

See below: Alcohol, shown in black, also binds to the gaba receptors, and increases the quieting effect that gaba has on neurons. Researchers are not sure exactly how it does so, but one theory holds that it causes the ion channels to stay open longer, thus increasing the ion flow. The result is a much greater quieting effect on the brain. ...Read more

Does dopamite(dopamine supplement) increase more dopamine level or prescribed medicine like biperiden(dopamine reuptake inhibitor) does?

Does dopamite(dopamine supplement) increase more dopamine level or prescribed medicine like biperiden(dopamine reuptake inhibitor) does?

I'm curious: Why do you believe you need to take medication that claims to affect dopamine, especially OTC remedy which will NOT cross the brain-blood barrier? If you are depressed, you could see a psychiatrist, and if you have Parkinson's disease, a neurologist. ...Read more

How does ADH (vasopressin) stimulate water reabsorption in the kidney?

How does ADH (vasopressin) stimulate water reabsorption in the kidney?

Distal channels: Anti diuretic hormone promotes water absorption in the distal kidney by opening channels there. It requires an adequate hyper tonicityof the medulla which can be impaired by loop diuretic use. ...Read more

Does diazepam increase blood alcohol content?

Does diazepam increase blood alcohol content?

No, but.: Diazepam does not increase blood alcohol content. Diazepam will add to the depressant effect of the alcohol, so the person who is drinking alcohol will appear more drunk. ...Read more

SEROQUEL"quetiapine"raises prolactin levels, does that means protein synthesis is inhibited completely? or insignificantly?will it affect muscle growt

SEROQUEL"quetiapine"raises prolactin levels, does that means protein synthesis is inhibited completely? or insignificantly?will it affect muscle growt

Not likely : Quetiapine has the least propensity to raise prolactin levels (hyperprolactinemia) and therefore is likely to have little or insignificant effects on muscle growth. However, individuals vary in their response to medications and hyperprolactinemia is considered a rare side effect of Quetiapine. You could request labs to measure your prolactin levels. Great question! ...Read more

Does prolactinoma condition inhibit oxytocin production?

Does prolactinoma condition inhibit oxytocin production?

Usually does not: Prolactinoma from a pituitary tumor affects the anterior pituitary. The posterior pituitary is usually not affected-this is where the cells for oxytocin reside. The excess prolactin secretion does not usually impact the oxytocin production. ...Read more

Does alcohol actually bind to GABA receptors or just increase GABA neurotransmition? Or a combination of both?

Does alcohol actually bind to GABA receptors or just increase GABA neurotransmition? Or a combination of both?

Complicated!: Specific gabaa receptor subtypes are sensitive at lower doses (social drinking) while other subtypes respond to ethanol at doses attained by severe intoxication. Furthermore, it increases gabaergic neurotransmission through indirect effects, including the elevation of endogenous gabaergic neuroactive steroids, presynaptic release of gaba, and dephosphorylation of gabaa receptors. ...Read more

I am a pot smoker. When I drink coffee/alcohol, I have to urinate more freq than the ave person. Since THC lowers vasopressin, could I be deficient?

I am a pot smoker. When I drink coffee/alcohol, I have to urinate more freq than the ave person. Since THC lowers vasopressin, could I be deficient?

Diuretics: Coffee and alcohol are both diuretics making one urinate more. It is said that thc lowers vasopressin release but this side effect is more about memory imprinting than urinating. ...Read more

Can you drink moderate amount of alcohol (one or two drinks a week) while taking Dexilant, which is a proton pump inhibitor?

Can you drink moderate amount of alcohol (one or two drinks a week) while taking Dexilant, which is a proton pump inhibitor?

No: Alcohol is toxic to living tissues (we humans happen to be a complex glob of living tissues), so avoid "moderate drinking." Moderate drinking is too much alcohol. Also, a person with stomach problems doesn't need any additional, voluntary toxins in her stomach or in her body. It's much safer to drink water or green tea, neither of which contain calories nor alcohol. ...Read more

What is the relationship between anti-diuretic hormone, urine volume and drinking alcohol?

What is the relationship between anti-diuretic hormone, urine volume and drinking alcohol?

Direct relationship: Antidiuretic hormone is a hormone secreted by pitutary gland in the brain which increase water absorption from kidney tubules resulting in decrease urine volume. Alcohol inhibits ADH (vasopressin) resulting in increased urinary production. ...Read more
