adrenergic

term used generically to describe nerves which liberate either adrenaline ( epinephrine ) or noradrenaline ( norepinephrine ) as a neurotransmitter from their endings; also in common usage in USA as an adjective for things associated with adrenaline or noradrenaline such as receptors. noradrenergic is sometimes used specifically to describe noradrenaline-releasing nerves. See also adrenoceptors.

In the present study, there was evidence of enhanced noradrenergic activity after administration of 40 mg of paroxetine in both groups: immediately before exercise, the HR was higher than that in the other experimental trials (Figure 5), whereas the plasma glucose concentration was increased compared with that of the placebo and 10 mg paroxetine trials (Figure 7).
Comparing the practice group activities with those of other groups that had received the drug, there was a high time difference; so it can be concluded that in the athletes using CNS stimulant drugs, the mechanism of action of drugs mimicking sympathetic stimulation (transmitting neural Neurons substrate) are indirectly causing the nerve to stimulate adrenergic, noradrenergic, dopaminergic, and by this to free epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine in synapses more than normal and remain with high concentration in there.
