How does strattera (atomoxetine) help for ADHD if it is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor , without affecting dopamine ?

How does strattera (atomoxetine) help for ADHD if it is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor , without affecting dopamine ?

Strattera (atomoxetine) blocks : Reuptake of norepinephrine but rat studies show that it also raises levels of Dopamine in the prefrontal cortex 3x without raising levels in the nucleus accumbens that controls addiction and where the other stimulant drugs also act. Dr. Stephen stahl calls some of the cells in the prefrontal cortex promiscuous because they contain both norepinephrine and dopamine. There is more to be learned. ...Read more

Is there any bad interaction between ecstasy (mdma) and nris (norepinephrine reputake inhibitors)?

Is there any bad interaction between ecstasy (mdma) and nris (norepinephrine reputake inhibitors)?

Yes: You don't need a bad interaction to have a bad experience with ecstasy. Both have stimulant like properties which can cause flushing, palpitations and psychosis. Ecstasy can be very dangerous in chronic use leading to depression which is hard to treat. It burns out your pleasure centers like Cocaine and other stimulants. ...Read more

Will rhodiola rosea herb decrease norepinephrine levels in brain?

Will rhodiola rosea herb decrease norepinephrine levels in brain?

Probably not: There are anecdotal reports that this native siberian plant increases brain norepinephrine, but, to my reading, this may be open to question. ...Read more

What are natural/holistic ways of stimulating or increasing norepinephrine in the brain?

What are natural/holistic ways of stimulating or increasing norepinephrine in the brain?

Tyrosine: Some feel that stress depletes catecholamine neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine in the brain.Tyrosine is a precursor for the synthesis of catecholamines, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine. Mental well-being is much more complex than any one neurotransmitter, but supplemental tyrosine may increase ne levels in the brain. Nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn & arthralgias may come too. ...Read more

What happens when the brain has too much norepinephrine?

What happens when the brain has too much norepinephrine?

Not sure: What I do know that one class of the antidepressant medications is based on the inhibition of an enzyme that reduces the level of norepinephrine, so net effect is noreinephrine increase. Opposite of depression is agitation, even convulsions..It's a complex subject though. ...Read more

What happenes when the brain is exosed to too much norepinephrine?

What happenes when the brain is exosed to too much norepinephrine?

Along with serotonin and dopamine, norepinephrine is a neurotransmitter in the brain. "too much" could lead to activation &anxiety. It may enhance some types of aggression in animals, plus impulsivity and episodic violence in humans. ...Read more

Can Xanax (alprazolam) cause brain fog? Also can low norepinephrine cause brain fog? I feel as if my dopamine is fine anything besides stims help with "fog"?

"Low"? "Normal"?: You're treating the human brain like a casserole. You're reducing to absurd simplicity an organ whose complexity surpasses human understanding. Neurotransmitters SO don't work that way. There is no "low" or "normal" the way you' think of it. Neurochemistry isn't a New Age fad. Your awareness of it is commendable but you labor under major misconceptions. You can learn more. It's not beyond you. ...Read more

Does ibuprofen raise or lower levels of serotonin dopamine or norepinephrine in the brain? Or something else?

Does ibuprofen raise or lower levels of serotonin dopamine or norepinephrine in the brain? Or something else?

There are no levels: There are no "levels" of neurotransmitters (NTs) in the brain. They don't just float around freely as if in blood. NTs are constantly being dynamically synthesized in neurons, being released into synaptic clefts, & within milliseconds undergoing reuptake either before or after the molecules have been destroyed & recycled into making more NTs. Furthermore, NTs differ depending on the brain region. ...Read more

Is the selective norepinephine reuptake inhibitor, reboxetine, effective ?

Evidence says not: One meta-analysis* (a study pooling results from multiple other studies) suggested that reboxetine is ineffective & may be harmful. *(eyding d et.Al.
