      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Caffeine: Good or Bad?

Recommended Posts

hey MN- car to enlighten us on the MOA of caffeine? i assume then that all stimulants have the same MOA? yelrotflmao.gifwave.gif

 

 

Caffeine is an antagonist to adenosine receptors.

 

No, all stimulants do not have the same MOA

 

For example, Cocaine increases the release of dopamine, Ecstasy blocks the reuptake of serotonin.

Right about what? Quoting yourself now are you, Miss Normandy?

 

I discovered first hand this weekend the limitations of caffeine. I was so tired driving back from Mt. Hood that three cups of coffee and two diet cokes had almost no effect. There was so much adenosine built up in my brain, the caffeine could not keep it from find it's home in its receptors.

 

I would have given anything for some Dexedrine

I'm just curious as to wether or not my pharmacology is up to par and minx never responded to my answer to his question.

 

I'm willing to give y'all credit as being right that caffeine is not a diuretic, I just need to do a little more research and thinking about it because I'm skeptical. Maybe I just don't like to be wrong.

your answer is close but not quite. close enough. it's been a few years since neuroendicronology so i should look up a few of the specifics. but you'll note that they are all different pathways and would not necessarily induce increased kidney functions.
