Blood Pressure medication and noradreniline

Postby Dahl » Mon Dec 24, 2007 3:43 am

How would blood pressure medication interact with noradreniline and seratonin levels?

Beta blockers antagonise the effect of noradrenaline on b2 adrenoreceptors within the heart but i don't think this affect neurotransmitter levels...

Diuretics, ACE inhibitors and calcium antagonists will not interact at all...

edit: i'm intrigued why do you asked the question... it seems a bit random to me...

This is where a little bit of information can be dangerous. I'm sure I asked the wrong question. I was watching a program on Brain function and it was mentioned that acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter may be affected by blood pressure medications and change your feelings of being alert and how 'bright' you feel. Since I have lost all zest for life (not depressed) and take a number of blood pressure pills I thought I could take my doctor an educated guess and google brought me here.

I'm way over my head - but thank you for responding!

I think you are coming to crazy conclusions based on a inaccurate TV program... :twisted:

It's probably best for you to see your GP...
