Nicotine
Mechanism of Action
Nicotine binds to a4b2 subunit of nACh receptor
This causes influx of Na+ and Ca2+
Ca2+ Binds to calmodulin
Dopamine is released
Also when N binds to nACh receptor: Ach, Epi, 5-HT, GABA, Endorphins and Glutamate are released (lots of good feelings...nicotine is very addictive!)
Side Effects
Insomnia
Nausea
Parital Agonist for Smoking Tx
Varenicline
Cytisine
Chronic smoking leads to a decrease in MAO so on a regular basis will have increases in NE, ACh, 5-HT etc
