Would activation of the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system lead to hunger?

Would activation of the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system lead to hunger?

A PairofSympathetics: The answer could be made VERY complicated but, just to sort-of give an overall picture: if you are jagged-up by the sympathetic system, you won't have much of an appetite unless you're a shark on the make (well, a shark is a Chondrichthyte so technically doesn't have a sympathetic nervous system....whatever...), but if you are calmed down parasympathetically your juices will flow, ready to eat.

What meds reduce sympathetic or increase parasympathetic nervous system? My system is way out of whack after many illness & horrid reaction to sudafed

What meds reduce sympathetic or increase parasympathetic nervous system? My system is way out of whack after many illness & horrid reaction to sudafed

Sorry, you lost me: Your autonomic system doesn't just sit there. Its activity constantly changes from moment to moment. Please repost & explain what you think you mean by "way out of whack." Also, unfortunately, "horrid reaction to sudafed" is useless as pt history. Finally, please explain why you imagine that your sympathetic nervous system needs reduction & your parasympathetic increasing. Why not the opposite?

Do drugs like Zoloft (sertraline) and olanzapine work on the parasympathetic nervous system and that's what calms you down?

Do drugs like Zoloft (sertraline) and olanzapine work on the parasympathetic nervous system and that's what calms you down?

No.: The parasympathetic nervous system does not "calm you down." These drugs work at the cortical and subcortical levels. Any affective influences of the autonomic nervous system are secondary to the physiological effects.

Masturbation: Masturbation does not lead to disease. Any person, including a physician who says otherwise has lied to you. Masturbation does not cause any health or medical complications to the human. It is a normal, common and universal part of the human experience.

Do the drugs olanzapine, Zoloft (sertraline) and elavil work on the parasympathetic nervous system to calm you down?

Do the drugs olanzapine, Zoloft (sertraline) and elavil work on the parasympathetic nervous system to calm you down?

Elavil (amitriptyline): Has mostly anticholinergic side effects (dry mouth, constipation, elevated heart rate) just the opposite of parasympathetic. The calming effect is due to a much more complex interaction of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters further up stream (cortex and deep gray matter structures like the thalamus, the hypopithalamus, putamen, globus pallidus, nucleus accumbens, ventral tegmental area.)

What are the drawbacks of drinking coffee? Can it cause problems, although the caffeine doesn't give you jitters or anxiety/nervousness?

What are the drawbacks of drinking coffee? Can it cause problems, although the caffeine doesn't give you jitters or anxiety/nervousness?

Moderation: Like any chemical, caffeine can cause health problems if abused. Limit your intake to one or two portions a day, and you should be fine. Remember that tea and most colas also have caffeine. Too much could cause fast heart rate, arrythmias, high blood pressure, and hyperactivity. So, enjoy, just don't overdo it. Good luck.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) central nervous system side effects due to caffeine?

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) central nervous system side effects due to caffeine?

U need 2 do the work: You shouldn't post such questions on HealthTap. Answering them is not a good use of HealthTap doctors' time. There are many websites with free interaction checkers you can use yourself e.g. Drugs. Com, Epocrates, Medscape, Webmd & numerous others. What's more, doing it yourself will make you a better patient & put you in better control of your care because you'll learn, understand & remember more.

What causes caffeine intolerance/sensitivity. If I accidentally drink it, I get dizzy, anxious, can't speak properly ect. Is it a nervous system react?

Stimulant: Caffeine is a stmulant and if you avoid it a small amount can evoke a strong response--heavy users become tolerant and unresponsive--can drink a pot of coffee & go to sleep! you recognize it's effect on you--i guess the best would be to be careful to avoid it--might talk to your doc about a minor tranquilizer to keep in your pocket to counteract the effect when you inadvertently ingest some.
