Are there homeopathic dopamine antagonist?

Are there homeopathic dopamine antagonist?

No: Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really there anymore (just the "essence" of it remains). That means there is no active ingredient left to antagonize dopamine. However, that also implies that the homeopathic "medicine" should be pretty harmless, unless some other non-homeopathic ingredient (such as some other chemical) was added. Read more

How do dopamine antagonist help opioid nausea if opioid nause is mediated through opioid receptors and not dopamine?

How do dopamine antagonist help opioid nausea if opioid nause is mediated through opioid receptors and not dopamine?

Interrelated: All receptor systems are interrelated and interact with each other. Whatever induces nausea, the reaction is triggered by dopaminergic pathways in a part of the brain called the chemoreceptor trigger zone. Most anti-emetics work by antagonizing dopamine. The combination of opioids and antinausea medications is quite common, both for synergism and to reduce nausea. Read more

What p450 enzymes are inhibited/induced by seroquel, (quetiapine) and what does a dopamine/norepinephrine antagonist do? Reduce dopamine levels? Specifics please?

What p450 enzymes are inhibited/induced by seroquel, (quetiapine) and what does a dopamine/norepinephrine antagonist do? Reduce dopamine levels? Specifics please?

Neither: Seroquel (quetiapine) passes through the cyp450 3a4 pathway & is extensively metabolized, but it neither inhibits nor induces the pathway itself. On the other hand, it's metabolism may be significantly affected by other medications. For instance, Dilantin induces the pathway causing seroquel (quetiapine) to be rushed through the pathway, leading to less-effective, lower blood levels. Antagonists are blockers. Read more
