  • ★★ How Long Does She Want You to Last? ★★ A recent study proved that the average man lasts just 2-5 minutes in bed (during intercourse). The study also showed that many women need at least 7-10 minutes of intercourse to reach "The Big O" - and, worse still... 30% of women never get there during intercourse. Clearly, most men are NOT fulfilling there women's needs in bed. Now, as I've said many times - how long you can last is no guarantee of being a GREAT LOVER. But, not being able to last 20, 30 minutes or more, is definitely a sign that you're not going to "set your woman's world on fire" between the sheets. Question is: "What can you do to last longer?" Well, one of the best recommendations I can give you today is to read THIS report. In it, you'll discover a detailed guide to an Ancient Taoist Thrusting Technique that can help any man to last much longer in bed. I can vouch 100% for the technique because my husband has been using it for years :) Here's the link to the report ★★★ http://ishbv.com/rockhardx/pdf

  • Forget about surgery, pills and weights, they DONT work! This DOES work, but you need to follow the methods contained in the guide. Let's be honest, penis size is an important aspect of any man's life whether they want to admit it or not. The market is flooded with products and solutions that claim to have the answer to making your member bigger, but usually these products fail to deliver. Luckily, I happened to come across what might be the "Holy Grail of Penis Enlargement", it's written by this guy named John Collins and it's called the Penis Enlargement Bible. What I found mind blowing about John's program is that he backs up his claims with actual video proof and testimonials from customers who have used the product. It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I would say most of these videos are worth 3 to 4 inches! Forget extenders, pills, suction devices and surgery. They are either expensive, too painful or they just don't work. The Penis Enlargement Bible is a proven two step program that combines natural over the counter supplements with a specially designed exercise regime to achieve up to 4" of growth within just a few months. If you are serious about getting bigger, check out the Penis Enlargement Bible here ♥♥♥ https://tinyurl.com/ydaetwbk

Adrenergic agonists

  1. 1. BY: PROFESSOR EMILIANO Z. SISON JR.
  2. 2.    The adrenergic drugs affect receptors that are stimulated by norepinephrine or epinephrine. Some adrenergic drugs act directly on the adrenergic receptor (adrenoceptor) by activating it and are said to be sympathomimetic. Others will block the action of the neurotransmitters at the receptors (sympatholytics), whereas still other drugs affect adrenergic function by interrupting the release of norepinephrine from adrenergic neurons.
  3. 3. DRUGS UNDER ADRENERGIC AGONISTS INDIRECT-ACTING DIRECT-ACTING DIRECT & INDIRECT ACTING (mixed action)  Albuterol  Amphetamine  Ephedrine  Clonidine  Cocaine  Pseudophrine  Dobutamine  Tyramine  Dopamine  Epinephrine  Isoproterenol  Metaproterenol  Methoxamine  Norepinephrine  Phenylphrine  Piruterol  Salmeterol  Terbutaline
  4. 4. CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS HEADACHE HYPERACTIVITY INSOMIA NAUSEA TREMORS
  5. 5. Adrenergic neurons release norepinephrine as the primary neurotransmitter. These neurons are found in the central nervous system (CNS) and also in the sympathetic nervous system, where they serve as links between ganglia and the effector organs. The adrenergic neurons and receptors, located either presynaptically on the neuron or postsynaptically on the effector organ, are the sites of action of the adrenergic drugs.
  6. 6. 1. SYNTHESIS OF NOREPINEPHRINE  Hydroxylation of tyrosine is the rate-limiting step 2. UPTAKE INTO STORAGE VESICLES    Dopamine enters vesicle & is converted to norepinephrine Norepinephrine is protected from degradation in vesicle Transport into vesicle is inhibited by reserpine 3. RELEASE OF NEUROTRANSMITTER  Influx of calcium causes fusion of vesicle w/ cell membrane  Release blocked by guanethidine & bretylium 4. BINDING TO RECEPTOR  Postsynaptic receptor activated by binding of neurotransmitter 5. REMOVAL OF NOREPINEPHRINE  Released norepinephrine is rapidly taken into neuron  Uptake is inhibited by cocaine & imipramine 6. METABOLISM  Norepinephrine is methylated by COMT & oxidized by monoamine oxidase
  7. 7. ADRENOCEPTORS αRECEPTORS α1-receptor α2-receptor βRECEPTORS β1-receptor β2-receptor β3-receptor
  8. 8.     The α-adrenoceptors show a weak response to the synthetic agonist isoproterenol, but they are responsive to the naturally occurring catecholamines epinephrine and norepinephrine. For α receptors, the rank order of potency is epinephrine ≥ norepinephrine >> isoproterenol. The α-adrenoceptors are subdivided into two subgroups, α1 and α2, based on their affinities for α agonists and blocking drugs. For example, the α1 receptors have a higher affinity for phenylephrine than do the α2 receptors.
  9. 9.      β Receptors exhibit a set of responses different from those of the α receptors. These are characterized by a strong response to isoproterenol, with less sensitivity to epinephrine and norepinephrine. For β receptors, the rank order of potency is isoproterenol > epinephrine > norepinephrine. The β-adrenoceptors can be subdivided into three major subgroups, β1, β2, and β3, based on their affinities for adrenergic agonists and antagonists, although several others have been identified by gene cloning. β1 Receptors have approximately equal affinities for epinephrine and norepinephrine, whereas β2 receptors have a higher affinity for epinephrine than for norepinephrine.
  10. 10. Most of the adrenergic drugs are derivatives of β-phenylethylamine. Two important structural features of these drugs are: 1. the number and location of OH substitutions on the benzene ring & 2. the nature of the substituent on the amino nitrogen.
  11. 11.  Sympathomimetic amines that contain the 3,4-dihydroxybenzene group: (such as epinephrine, norepinephrine, isoproterenol, and dopamine) are called catecholamines.  These compounds share the following properties: 2. Rapid inactivation 1. High potency 3. Poor penetration into the CNS
  12. 12.  Compounds lacking the catechol hydroxyl groups have longer half-lives, because they are not inactivated by COMT.     These include: phenylephrine, ephedrine, and amphetamine.
  13. 13.    Epinephrine is synthesized from tyrosine in the adrenal medulla and released, along with small quantities of norepinephrine, into the bloodstream. Epinephrine interacts with both α and β receptors. At low doses, β effects (vasodilation) on the vascular system predominate, whereas at high doses, α effects (vasoconstriction) are strongest.
  14. 14. CARDIOVASCULAR RESPIRATORY HYPERGLYCEMIA LIPOLYSIS Epinephrine strengthens the contractility of the myocardium (positive inotropic: β1 action) and increases its rate of contraction (positive chronotropic: β1 action). Epinephrine causes powerful bronchodilation by acting directly on bronchial smooth muscle (β2 action). Epinephrine has a significant hyperglycemic effect because of increased glycogenolysis in the liver (β2 effect), increased release of glucagon (β2 effect), and a decreased release of insulin (α2 effect). Epinephrine initiates lipolysis through its agonist activity on the β receptors of adipose tissue, which upon stimulation activate adenylyl cyclase to increase cAMP levels.
  15. 15. BRONCHOSPASM GLAUCOMA ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK CARDIAC ARREST ANESTHETICS Epinephrine is the primary drug used in the emergency treatment of any condition of the respiratory tract when bronchoconstriction has resulted in diminished respiratory exchange. In ophthalmology, a two-percent epinephrine solution may be used topically to reduce intraocular pressure in openangle glaucoma. Epinephrine is the drug of choice for the treatment of Type I hypersensitivity reactions in response to allergens. Epinephrine may be used to restore cardiac rhythm in patients with cardiac arrest regardless of the cause. The effect of the drug is to greatly increase the duration of the local anesthesia.

  17. 17. HYPERTHYROIDISM COCAINE DIABETES β-BLOCKERS INHALATION ANESTHETICS
  18. 18.   Because norepinephrine is the neuromediator of adrenergic nerves, it should theoretically stimulate all types of adrenergic receptors. In practice, when the drug is given in therapeutic doses to humans, the α-adrenergic receptor is most affected.
  19. 19. VASOCONSTRICTION BARORECEPTOR REFLEX EFFECTS OF ATROPINE PRE-TREATMENT Norepinephrine causes a rise in peripheral resistance due to intense vasoconstriction of most vascular beds, including the kidney (α1 effect). In isolated cardiac tissue, norepinephrine stimulates cardiac contractility; however, in vivo, little if any cardiac stimulation is noted. If atropine, which blocks the transmission of vagal effects, is given before norepinephrine, then norepinephrine stimulation of the heart is evident as tachycardia.
  20. 20.    Isoproterenol is a direct-acting synthetic catecholamine that predominantly stimulates both β1- and β2-adrenergic receptors. Its nonselectivity is one of its drawbacks and the reason why it is rarely used therapeutically. Its action on α receptors is insignificant.
  21. 21. CARDIOVASCULAR PULMONARY OTHER EFFECTS Isoproterenol produces intense stimulation of the heart to increase its rate and force of contraction, causing increased cardiac output. Isoproterenol is as active as epinephrine and rapidly alleviates an acute attack of asthma when taken by inhalation (which is the recommended route). Other actions on β receptors, such as increased blood sugar and increased lipolysis, can be demonstrated but are not clinically significant.
  22. 22.   Dopamine, the immediate metabolic precursor of norepinephrine, occurs naturally in the CNS in the basal ganglia, where it functions as a neurotransmitter, as well as in the adrenal medulla. Dopamine can activate α- and β-adrenergic receptors.
  23. 23. CARDIOVASCULAR RENAL & VISCERAL Dopamine exerts a stimulatory effect on the Dopamine dilates renal and splanchnic β1 receptors of the heart, having both arterioles by activating dopaminergic inotropic and chronotropic effects. receptors, thus increasing blood flow to the kidneys and other viscera. Therefore, dopamine is clinically useful in the treatment of shock, in which significant increases in sympathetic activity might compromise renal function.
  24. 24.     Dobutamine is a synthetic, direct-acting catecholamine that is a β1-receptor agonist. One of the stereoisomers has a stimulatory activity. It increases cardiac rate and output with few vascular effects. Dobutamine is used to increase cardiac output in congestive heart failure as well as for inotropic support after cardiac surgery.
  25. 25.    Oxymetazoline is a direct-acting synthetic adrenergic agonist that stimulates both α1- and α2-adrenergic receptors. It is primarily used locally in the eye or the nose as a vasoconstrictor. Oxymetazoline is found in many over-the-counter shortterm nasal spray decongestant products as well as in ophthalmic drops for the relief of redness of the eyes associated with swimming, colds, or contact lens.
  26. 26.    Phenylephrine is a direct-acting, synthetic adrenergic drug that binds primarily to α receptors and favors α1 receptors over α2 receptors. It is not a catechol derivative and, therefore, not a substrate for COMT. Phenylephrine is a vasoconstrictor that raises both systolic and diastolic blood pressures.
  27. 27.    Methoxamine is a direct-acting, synthetic adrenergic drug that binds primarily to α-receptors, with α1 receptors favored over α2 receptors. Methoxamine raises blood pressure by stimulating α1 receptors in the arterioles, causing vasoconstriction. This causes an increase in total peripheral resistance.
  28. 28.    Clonidine is an α2 agonist that is used in essential hypertension to lower blood pressure because of its action in the CNS. It can be used to minimize the symptoms that accompany withdrawal from opiates or benzodiazepines. Clonidine acts centrally to produce inhibition of sympathetic vasomotor centers, decreasing sympathetic outflow to the periphery.
  29. 29.    Metaproterenol, although chemically similar to isoproterenol, is not a catecholamine, and it is resistant to methylation by COMT. Metaproterenol produces dilation of the bronchioles and improves airway function. The drug is useful as a bronchodilator in the treatment of asthma and to reverse bronchospasm.
  30. 30.  Albuterol, pirbuterol, and terbutaline are shortacting β2 agonists used primarily as bronchodilators and administered by a metereddose inhaler.
  31. 31.   Salmeterol and formoterol are β2-adrenergic selective, long-acting bronchodilators. Salmeterol and formoterol are the agents of choice for treating nocturnal asthma in symptomatic patients taking other asthma medications.
  32. 32.    The marked central stimulatory action of amphetamine is often mistaken by drug abusers as its only action. The CNS stimulant effects of amphetamine and its derivatives have led to their use for treating hyperactivity in children, narcolepsy, and appetite control. Its use in pregnancy should be avoided because of adverse effects on development of the fetus.
  33. 33.    Tyramine is not a clinically useful drug, but it is important because it is found in fermented foods, such as ripe cheese and Chianti wine. It is a normal by-product of tyrosine metabolism. Normally, it is oxidized by MAO in the gastrointestinal tract, but if the patient is taking MAO inhibitors, it can precipitate serious vasopressor episodes.
  34. 34.   Cocaine is unique among local anesthetics in having the ability to block the Na+/K+-activated ATPase (required for cellular uptake of norepinephrine) on the cell membrane of the adrenergic neuron. Like amphetamines, it can increase blood pressure by αagonist actions and β-stimulatory effects.
  35. 35.     Ephedrine, and pseudoephedrine are plant alkaloids, that are now made synthetically. These drugs are mixed-action adrenergic agents. They not only release stored norepinephrine from nerve endings but also directly stimulate both α and β receptors. Thus, a wide variety of adrenergic actions ensue that are similar to those of epinephrine, although less potent.
  36. 36.    Ephedrine enhances contractility and improves motor function in myasthenia gravis. Ephedrine has been used to treat asthma, as a nasal decongestant (due to its local vasoconstrictor action), and to raise blood pressure. Pseudoephedrine is primarily used to treat nasal and sinus congestion or congestion of the eustachian tubes.
