In healthy volunteers, a norepinephrine infusion of 0.1 mcg/kg per minute or greater was associated with decreased frontal lobe oxygenation and internal jugular venous oxygen saturation.
TCAs act by blocking presynaptic reuptake of norepinephrine or serotonin; they theoretically increase the effects of direct- or indirect-acting agonists at these synapses.[4] TCAs may also block alpha-adrenergic receptors, which causes hypotension resulting from reduction of myocardial contractility and systemic vascular resistance.[4],[5] TCAs inhibit Na/K-ATPase and act like quinidine-like antiarrhythmics by stabilizing excitable membranes and delaying His bundle conduction.
Functionally, the accumulation of norepinephrine inhibits micturition by relaxing the detrusor muscle and constricting the urethral smooth muscle.
