  • effects
  • Overall, investigations published to date suggest that receptor-dependent effects of norepinephrine might predispose to complex evolving deterioration especially during intensive care which is characterized by differentiated complication-driven changes and specific complication-dependent needs. (uzh.ch)
  • possible
  • Despite its secure integration of norepinephrine in clinical routine, future emphasis must be directed at unmasking, monitoring, and controlling possible receptor-mediated detrimental influences which could offset anticipated organ protection. (uzh.ch)
  • skeletal muscle
  • In the rest of the body, norepinephrine increases heart rate and blood pressure, triggers the release of glucose from energy stores, increases blood flow to skeletal muscle, reduces blood flow to the gastrointestinal system, and inhibits voiding of the bladder and gastrointestinal motility. (wikipedia.org)
  • drugs
  • Many important psychiatric drugs exert strong effects on norepinephrine systems in the brain, resulting in side-effects that may be helpful or harmful. (wikipedia.org)
  • Drugs that mimic the action of norepinephrine are often used to treat asthma because they relax bronchial smooth muscle, helping the asthma patient to breathe more easily. (encyclopedia.com)
  • fight-or-fligh
  • Norepinephrine release is lowest during sleep, rises during wakefulness, and reaches much higher levels during situations of stress or danger, in the so-called fight-or-flight response. (wikipedia.org)
  • harmful
  • To be sure norepinephrine is not causing harmful effects, your blood pressure and breathing will be checked during the entire time you are receiving this medication. (cardiosmart.org)
  • clinical
  • Norepinephrine release may have a pronounced effect on large areas of the brain, which is why it has found clinical use in treating psychiatric disorders. (news-medical.net)
  • This structure explains some of the clinical uses of norepinephrine, since a modification of the system affects large areas of the brain. (wikidoc.org)
  • treatment
  • Atomoxetine -a norepinephrine-predominant SNRI used in the treatment of ADHD and, off-label, major depression. (wikipedia.org)
  • If you have any of these conditions, you may not be able to receive norepinephrine, or you may need dosage adjustments or special tests during treatment. (cardiosmart.org)
  • Follow your doctor's instructions about any restrictions in food, beverages, activities, or other medications after treatment with norepinephrine. (cardiosmart.org)
