: Pyrroxand and butyroxan -- original drugs possessing hyghly selective alpha-adreno-blocking action at peripheral and central level-relieve symptoms of abstinence syndrome caused by narcotics and other addicting drugs. On the basis of these data it is suggested that adrenergic structures of the brain play a key role in eliciting the abstinence syndrome.

TLDR
It is suggested that the balance of activities of noradrenergic neurons, especially that of alpha- and beta- receptors, has great influence on both the formation of physical dependence on barbital and the manifestation of withdrawal convulsions.
