Possible Interaction: Capsaicin and Vasoconstrictor Agents

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Acute application of capsaicin (0.03 or 0.1 microM) significantly inhibited vasoconstrictor responses.

This study suggests that facilitation of vasoconstrictor responses to transmural nerve stimulation after capsaicin treatment primarily reflects inhibition of sensory nerve effects resulting in an increase of sympathetic vasoconstrictor actions.
We and others have previously demonstrated that pretreatment with capsaicin produces an augmentation of vasoconstrictor responses to transmural nerve stimulation.

3 By means of local application of capsaicin to the nerves of the hind leg and by their chronic denervation, by treatment with phenoxybenzamine and guanethidine, evidence was obtained that reflex withdrawal of sympathetic vasoconstrictor tone mediates the heat loss reaction to intravenous capsaicin.
