Abstract J.R.Bassett, M.Story and K.D.Cairncross, The influence of orphenadrine upon the actions of a series of sympathomimetic agents , European J. Pharmacol. 4 (1968) 198–204. Orphenadrine potentiated the positive inotropic response to noradrenaline, 3–4 dihydroxynorephedrine, adrenaline and phenylephrine of the isolated atrial preparation of the guinea pig. The responses to metaraminol, synephrine, dopamine, tyramine, ephedrine, amphetamine and isoprenaline were not affected by orphenadrine…

Studies on the peripheral pharmacology of fenazoxine, a potential antidepressant drug
TLDR
The results presented suggest that fenazoxine inhibits the uptake of catecholamines in a manner similar to that reported for desmethylimipramine and cocaine.
Inhibition of orphenadrine of 3H-dl-noradrenaline and 14C-tyramine uptake in atria.
Abstract Orphenadrine reduced the accumulation of radioactivity by guinea pig atria incubated with either 3 H- dl -noradrenaline or 14 C-tyramine, indicating an inhibition of the uptake of these
Pharmacological evidence that α1‐ and α2‐adrenoceptors mediate vasoconstriction of carotid arteriovenous anastomoses in anaesthetized pigs
TLDR
Results show that both α1‐ and α2‐adrenoceptors can mediate vasoconstriction of carotid arteriovenous anastomoses in anaesthetized pigs, which may aid further understanding of the mode of action of some current anti‐migraine agents and may eventually be helpful in the development of future treatment in migraine.
Modification of strychnine-induced convulsions by anticonvulsants in the frog.
TLDR
The duration of the most prolonged convulsion is given as the most suitable parameter for assessing anticonvulsive activity using the partly decerebrate frog.

TLDR
Diphenhydramine enhanced the action of noradrenaline more than that of adrenaline and had little effect on tyramine action, giving a sensitization which bears a greater resemblance to the type caused by cocaine or chronic postganglionic denervation.

TLDR
The experiments suggest that interaction of adrenergic receptors with antihistamine did not occur and are consistent with the thesis that inhibition of amine uptake at the neuronal membrane may lead to an increased amine accumulation in the vicinity of the receptor, which results in a potentiated response.
Pharmacological properties of antihistamine drugs, benadryl, pyribenzamine and neoantergan.
TLDR
Pyribenzamine and Neoantergan may be more specific than Benadryl as regards antihistamine action, and are more potent relative to prevention of fatal histamine shock in guinea pigs.
Retention of injected catechol amines by the mouse.
TLDR
The results show that under certain conditions the two hormones compete for entry into the tissue storage sites, and that this method of inactivation is quantitatively more important for noradrenaline than for adrenaline at all dose levels studied.
Influence of cocaine on the uptake of H3-norepinephrine and on the responses of isolated guinea-pig atria to sympathomimetic amines.
TLDR
Results provide additional evidence that cocaine causes supersensitivity to a directly-acting amine by inhibiting its uptake into norepinephrine stores and that the magnitude of its sensitization is proportional to the rate of uptake of the amine.
SOME ASPECTS OF THE PHARMACOLOGY OF ORPHENADRINE
Orphenadrine possesses muscle‐relaxant activity resembling that of tubocurarine in preparations of the hen, rat and frog. It antagonises suxamethonium‐induced contracture in the hen but increases the

TLDR
The delay of the urinary excretion of radioactivity following an injection of 3H-norepinephrine is caused by its binding in the tissues and slow release, and only negligible quantities of3H-iso-proterenol were found bound in tissues under similar conditions.
ACTIONS AND INTERACTIONS OF NOREPINEPHRINE, TYRAMINE AND COCAINE ON AORTIC STRIPS OF RABBIT AND LEFT ATRIA OF GUINEA PIG AND CAT.
TLDR
The actions and interactions of norepinephrine, tyramine and cocaine were studied on strips of thoracic aorta from rabbits and on electrically driven left atria from guinea pigs to develop a hypothetical scheme for the relationship between effector cells and structures.
