Possible Interaction: Oxytocin and Hexamethonium



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The effects of OT were also blocked by hexamethonium , a ganglionic blocking agent, by atropine, a muscarinic receptor antagonist, and by N(omega)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester, an inhibitor of nitric oxide synthesis.

Cardiac responses were induced when oxytocin was reinjected into active intrathoracic ganglionic sites after whole body administration of hexamethonium (10 mg/kg IV), but not after local administration of timolol into the ganglia.
