Possible Interaction: Epinephrine and Levodopa



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

L-Dopa uptake was decreased by the nonselective adrenergic agonists epinephrine or norepinephrine (40%), by the beta-selective agonist isoproterenol or the beta(2)-selective agonist terbutaline (60%), but not by alpha-selective agonists (all 1 microM).

The lowering of epinephrine concentration was greater with L-dopa than with D-dopa, was dose-related over a dosage range of 50 to 200 mg/kg of L-dopa and was not prevented by a dopamine receptor antagonist.
