Medicine For Noradrenaline Allergy
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
Raise blood pressure: Too much noradrenaline or norepinephrine causes increased heart rate, increased blood pressure and "opens up" airways to make it easier to breath if you are having bronchospasm or an asthmatic/allergic reaction. It is usually used in emergent situations to increase blood pressure when it is dangerously low. But in someone with a heart condition, it can cause too much stress on the heart as well. ...Read more
See below: •noradrenaline is the main neurotransmitter of the sympathetic nerves in the cardiovascular system. •adrenaline is the main hormone secreted by the adrenal medulla. •the sympathetic noradrenergic system plays major roles in tonic and reflexive changes in cardiovascular tone. •adrenaline is a major determinant of responses to metabolic or global challenges to homeostasis. ...Read more
Yes: The caffeine in coffee blocks Adenosine receptors, which when activated make you tired and sleepy. This blockade also affects all major neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin -- and in high doses, norepinephrine too. Dopamine effects are not in the exact same regions of the brain that other addictive substances affect, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would someone with hypopituitarism be able to make adrenaline or noradrenaline? Wondering for sports.
Absolutely, YES: Hi. People with hypopituitarism have no impairment in adrenal medullary function. Caveat: if your pit. tumor was Cushing's, and ACTH production couldn't be cured, and you went to bilateral adrenalectomy, then of course you'd have no adrenal medullary function. That's the only caveat unless you somehow had hypothalamic damage. You're probably FINE with sports. Go play! ...Read more
Below 150mg, Effexor (venlafaxine) acts on serotonin. Above 150mg, it acts on both serotonin and noradrenaline. What about at exactly 150mg?
Very good question : It's not quite that precise or exact. When it comes to medicine, each person is different and may have varying responses at given doses. It is quite complex and relates to factors such as pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. I invite you to read more on the subject as the world needs more people with inquisitive minds such as yours. Best wishes! ...Read more
Do beta-blockers block noradrenaline receptors or stop it from being created, and do they affect adrenaline? I don't want to use them, just curious.
Both: Beta blockers block the effects of both adrenaline and nor adrenaline. They don't stop production. Stopping beta-blockers too quickly can result in a heightened effect of adrenaline. If your doctor prescribed them, make sure they're aware if you don't take them, discuss any side effects, as well as any potential consequences of not taking them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why did effexor (venlafaxine) start helping at 150mg when max celexa and max zoloft didn't? I'm reading noradrenaline doesn't kick in until >150, so it's not that.
Stop taking it: If it is an extreme necessity, and there are no alternatives, and you don't know whether this an allergic reaction or an adverse drug reaction (side effect), see an allergist/immunologist for evaluation and possible desensitization to the said drug for treatment if a particular disease episode, good luck ...Read more
Various Options: Daily steroid or antihistamines nasal sprays (fluticasone, azelastine) are helpful. Determining exactly what you could be sensitized to in order to practice appropriate avoidance measures is also important. If medications and avoidance are not effective or not feasible allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) could be an option as well. Other meds include Sudafed, Mucinex, (guaifenesin) Afrin, oral antihistamines ...Read more
Could be!: Without understanding the circumstances and the type of reaction, it is impossible to answer the question. If you started the new medicine, and experienced a reaction, it could be due to allergy to the medication. ...Read more
No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far.....

OTC Allergy: Not fair. Truly, it is trial-and-error. What works best for you might not work best for someone else. Loratadine is the weakest binding non-sedating antihistamine; Cetirizine is the strongest binding non-sedating antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works better than both but it makes people sleepy. ...Read more
Several choices: The most effective treatment for relief of seasonal allergies are prescription nasal steroid sprays (qnasl, nasonex, (mometasone) rhinocort, flonase). If symptoms are mild then over the counter zyrtec, claritin, or Allegra can help. It's best to start treating seasonal allergies before the "season" starts. This is a prevention approach. If the above meds haven't controlled symptoms, consider allergy shots. ...Read more
