Abstract

Bretylium and guanethidine blocked the pressor effect of physostigmine and potentiated the responses to adrenaline and noradrenaline on the blood pressure of the rat. Morphine and atropine in small doses blocked the pressor effect of physostigmine without interfering with the actions of adrenaline and noradrenaline. Chlorpromazine in small doses (0.5 to 2.5 mg/kg) blocked the pressor effect of physostigmine and potentiated the responses to noradrenaline whilst those to adrenaline remained unaltered. 3,6-Di(3-diethylaminopropoxy)pyridazine di(methiodide) (Win 4981) blocked the pressor effect of physostigmine and, in its early stages, this block was partially reversed by choline chloride. N-Diethylaminoethyl-N-isopentyl-N'N'-diisopropylurea (P-286), in a dose that reduced the effect of dimethylphenylpiperazinium, had no effect on the pressor response to physostigmine or on the responses to adrenaline and noradrenaline. Hexamethonium, even in large doses (100 mg/kg), only blocked partially the effect of physostigmine while mecamylamine produced a complete block; the responses to adrenaline and noradrenaline were potentiated in both instances.
