Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Hexamethonium



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In a series of in vivo microdialysis experiments we investigated whether subchronic pre-treatment with … known to enhance ethanol consumption in the rat (nicotine or the peripheral nicotinic antagonist hexamethonium ) could modulate the alterations in extracellular … observed in response to administration of ethanol or the sedative …(A)-agonist diazepam.
The present results suggest that subchronic treatment with the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor antagonist hexamethonium reduces a GABA(A)-R mediated counteraction of the nucleus accumbens dopamine response to ethanol.

The blood-brain-barrier-penetrating nicotine antagonist mecamylamine (2.0 … 4.0 mg/kg), but not the quaternary nicotine antagonist hexamethonium (4.0 and 8.0 mg/kg), partly counteracted the LMA stimulatory effect of ethanol (3.0 g/kg) in doses having no LMA reducing effects per se.

Further, ethanol (1 g/kg) failed to reverse the hypotensive effect of the ganglionic blocker hexamethonium.
