Adrenoceptor agonists

  1. 1. Adrenoceptor agonists
  2. 2. Overview The study of the sympathetic nervous system is important from a clinical perspective. The SNS is involved in controlling heart rate, contractility, blood pressure, vasomotor tone, carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism etc. Stimulation of the SNS occurs in response to physical activity, psychological stress, allergies etc. Drugs influencing the SNS are used in treatment of hypertension, shock, cardiac failure and arrhythmias, asthma and emphysema, allergies and anaphylaxis.
  3. 3. Sites of Drug Action – Modulation of Neurotransmission ↓1 2. intake of precursor 3. synthesis 4. storage 5. metabolism 7. reuptake 6. release 8. degradation 9. receptor
  4. 4. Direct acting adrenergic drugs:
  5. 5. Sympathomimetics: Drugs that mimic or facilitate the actions of the sympatho-adrenal system.a) Direct acting: – Drugs that can act directly or specific adrenergic receptors – Mimic the effects of NE and Epib) Indirect acting: – Drugs that do not activate the adrenergic receptor directly i. Facilitate release of NE ii. Block neuronal uptake of NE iii. Block metabolism of NE
  6. 6.  classifications α-R agonists: NA, metaraminol α, β-R agonists: AD,ephedrine α, β, DA-R agonists: dopamine β-R agonists: Isop,dobutamine

  9. 9. Direct Acting Sympathomimetics:Ahlquist designated the receptors as α or β based on observations that catecholamines act on 2 principal receptors: α1: Epi ≥ NE >> INE α2: β1: INE > Epi = NE β2: INE > Epi >> NE

Prazosin causes a decrease in total peripheral resistance, but not an increase in heart rate (since alpha 2 receptors are not inhibited).
