Why does acetylcholine, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, cause the adrenal glands to release stimulatory hormones?

Not correct: Hi. Acetyl choline (ACh) is not an inhibitory neurotransmitter. The sympathetic nervous system uses ACh as the neurotransmitter in the sympathetic ganglia (the 1st synapse outside the CNS). Usually that's from one neuron to another, but in the adrenal medulla, the cells are really the second neuron, but they release their contents (catecholamines) into the blood, not onto an organ (like the heart) ...Read more

What neurotransmitters are released by opioid usage?

Endorphins: Because C-fibers release several excitatory neurotransmitters (e.g., substance P. CGRP), activation of opioid receptors will reduce the release of these transmitters from the presynaptic terminals of afferent sensory neurons. The opioids peptides that occur naturally in the human body are endorphins. ...Read more
