           Epinephrine Effects
           (1) Heart - Rate and Force of Contraction are both increased (CO is ↑). Therefore, oxygen consumption is increased.
           (2) Blood vessels – (a) Skeletal muscle arterioles: both 1 and 2 receptors are present: Physiological quantities see vasodilatation (2)/Pharmacological doses typically see
           vasoconstriction (1). (b) Veins: alpha-1; pure constriction. (c) Coronaries: vasodilate (d) kidney, skin, mucosa: vasoconstriction. (e) cerebral: unchanged
                 –     Net effects of BP (and cardiac fxn) depend on (1) dose, (2) circulatory status, (3) compensatory reflexes (baroreceptors-Stretch receptors located mainly in the carotid sinus (and
                       aortic arches) that sense blood pressure changes to maintain homeostasis. Signals are transmitted to the vasomotor center in the brain stem to alter parasympathetic and
                       sympathetic outflow to the heart and blood vessels.)
                 –     BP increases suddenly – sympathetic tone decreased; vagal tone to the SA node increased
                 –     BP decreases suddenly – sympathetic tone increased; vagal tone to the SA node decreased
           (3) Metabolic effects – (a) calorigenic effect and tremors in skeletal muscle (2), (b) mechanisms related to increased glycogenolysis (2) and lipolysis (3) at various organ sites (liver,
           skeletal muscle and adipocytes)

     •     FIRST GRAPH: NE and E have both been given at low doses. E widens the pulse pressure because it stimulates 2 receptor on arterioles, causing vasodilation. Because E at this dose does
           not raise mean blood pressure, no vagal reflexes are activated. Contrast these effects of those of NE, which essentially has no stimulant 2 effect
     •     SECOND GRAPH: In the next slide, notice that isoproterenol, a pure 1/2 agonist, has a greater vasodilating effect than E. This is because E is both a 2 agonist and also an 1 agonist. For
           E, The 1 effects partly offset the 2 effects at this dose. Indeed, if the dose of E is raised, only 1 agonist effects will be seen because E has more efficacy at 1 than 2 receptors.

Notes from slides:
          Direct acting non-catecholamines: Synthetic agents, lacking the catechol moiety. Analogues of NE or EPI. Non-catecholamines are metabolized more slowly (they are not acted upon as
          readily by MAO, and often they are not stored in vessicles). Therefore they are generally longer acting and some are effective p.o.

          β2 Selective Agonists: As a group, 5-10X more potent at β2 than β1 adrenergic receptors. Therefore more selective for smooth than cardiac muscle. Longer acting than catecholamines.
          Tolerance may develop. (USED IN ASTHMA to RELAX BRONCHIOLES)

          Amphetamines: Large group of drugs with high abuse potential (Schedule II). All are indirect acting. Release NE from adrenergic nerves. Also release dopamine in CNS, which is the
          mechanism of euphoria related to abuse. These agents are taken up into nerve terminals via the uptake-one mechanism. They also compete with and reduce NE and dopamine reuptake.
              •    Generally display a higher ratio of CNS to peripheral cardiovascular effects. However, vasoconstriction and a positive inotropic effect are present.

α adrenergic blockers
     •    They block the effects of any compound acting at a receptors (whether that compound acts directly or indirectly)
                –     Endogenous agonists (epinephrine; norepinephrine). Note: sympathetic tone explains why antagonists produce effects.
                –     Exogenously applied drugs (e.g. norepinephrine, phenylephrine, tyramine)
     •    Two families have been identified, each has 3 subtypes
                –     α1 family: α1A, α1B and α1D
                –     α2 family: α2A, α2B and α2C
     •    Some drugs differentiate α1 and α2 by family, but very few differentiate subtypes of receptors. The appearance of tamsulosin is particularly interesting in this regard.
     •    α1 receptor distribution and effects of stimulation
                –     arterioles and veins – constrict
                –     eye (radial muscle of the iris) – contracts (leads to pupil dilation)
                –     intestine – constricts sphincters, decreases motility (hyperpolarization leads to relaxation)
                –     prostate (note: this in an α1A receptor; vascular α receptors are likely α1B) – contraction, promotes tissue growth
                –     urinary bladder sphincters – constricts
     •    α2 receptor distribution and effects of stimulation
                –     NE nerve terminals – decreases NE outflow (autoreceptor)
                –     CNS – decreases sympathetic outflow

*Partial agonist that aren’t blockers. They down regulate so you will see the action similar to blockers. See ISA notes on back. Bolded names are on the drug list!!!
βadrenergic blockers
     •    β1 receptor distribution and effects of stimulation
                –    Heart – increases rate and contractility, enhances conduction through the AV node
     •    β2 receptor distribution and effects of stimulation
                –    bronchioles – relaxation
                –    uterus – relaxation
                –    arterioles – relaxation, diastolic BP drops
                –    skeletal muscles – promote K uptake, increase high-energy compounds
                –    liver – increases glycogenolysis
                –    fat cells – increases lipolysis
     •    No drugs are available that selectively stimulate or block β3 receptors
     •    Non-selective beta-blockers with ISA (partial agonists)
                –    ISA – intrinsic sympathomimetic activity
                –    This term is used to describe an agent that blocks the effects of a full agonist such as EPI, but that also causes some modest beta-adrenergic stimulation.
                –    ISA actually means that the agent is a partial agonist.
                            -     Occupancy of beta receptors shields them from the effects of full agonists, thus it looks like a beta blocker
                            -     Weak efficacy appears as a slight beta stimulation
                            -     As described below, partial agonist drugs exist that are either non-selective (b1/b2) or cardio selective (b1)
                            -     In theory, these agents should be preferred because of less bronchospasm, less bradycardia, less negative inotropic features, and a better lipid profile
                            -     However, no clinical therapeutic advantages have been documented
