Theoretically, anticholinergics and antiadrenergics
which have high-dose antipsychotics (such as phenothiazine) should be foreseen that they might form a risk factor in terms of angle-closure glaucoma (ACG).
Additionally, MMC (<30 mg/mL) showed the antiadrenergic
activity in the rat vas deferens.
* Pheochromocytoma: The rational for the use of magnesium sulphate infusion in the anaesthetic management of pheochromocytoma is its antiadrenergic
, antihypertensive & antiarrhythmic action.

agent prazosin is gaining increasing use in PTSD on the strength of several positive studies, including one that showed efficacy comparable to that of quetiapine but with far fewer side effects.
Although some evidence exists to support the use of other antiadrenergic
agents such as clonidine and guanfacine as well as the anticonvulsant gabapentin in PTSD, "'large, randomized controlled trials are needed to clarify the role" of all of these agents, Dr.
Droperidol has antiadrenergic
and antidopaminergic effects.

On the other hand, false-negative (FN) results could be found in patients on antihypertensive treatment with antiadrenergic
agents or ACE inhibitors, which both reduce CNH concentrations.
Peripherally acting antiadrenergic
agents, like reserpine, are rarely used in pregnancy so experience is limited and there are better-tolerated agents.
For example, diuretics (such as chlorthalidone, hydrochlorothiazide, and spironolactone),[15,18] central antiadrenergic
agents (eg, clonidine, methyldopa, reserpine),[19,22] and guanethidine are commonly cited as causing erectile disorder.
medications such as clonidine have decreased or exacerbated diaphoresis in studies.
