Basic Pharmacology of Serotonin
In this lecture ´´Serotonin and Ergot Alkaloids´´ are explained. Section one is about ´´Basic Pharmacology of Serotonin´´. Educator started this section by telling the history of serotonin. After that chemistry and pharmacokinetics are discussed in detail. Moreover, in this section pharmacodynamics are pursued. Lastly, tissue and organ system effects are explained.
Organ System Effects of Serotonin
Section two is about ‘’Organ System Effects of Serotonin’’. At first, effect on nervous system is explained. This is followed by the elucidation of effects on respiratory system. After that cardiovascular system is discussed. Likewise, effects on gastrointestinal tract are also discussed. At last, effects on skeletal muscle and the eye are reported.
Serotonin Agonists and Migraine
Section three is about ‘’Serotonin Agonists and Migraine’’. First of all, serotonin agonists are introduced. After that 5-HT1D/1B agonists are explained. Then migraine headaches are elucidated in detail. Likewise, migraine drugs are discussed. Explanation of mechanism of action is given at last.
Sumatriptan and Serotonin Antagonists
Section four is about ‘’Sumatriptan and Serotonin Antagonists’’. Initially, sumatriptan is explained in detail. Then side effects of sumatriptan are reported. Educator’s next focus is the contraindications of triptans. Afterwards, serotonin antagonists are highlighted. Then serotonin receptor antagonists are illustrated.
The Ergot Alkaloids
Section five is about ‘’The Ergot Alkaloids’’. Educator’s first theme of discussion is basic pharmacology of ergot alkaloids. Next is the elucidation of pharmacodynamics. After that organ system effects are pursued. Moreover, clinical pharmacology of ergot alkaloids comes under consideration. Finally, toxicity and contraindications are reported.
