Drug Mode of Action ::
Dopamine stimulates dopaminergic receptors at lower doses producing renal and mesenteric vasodilation while at higher doses stimulate both dopaminergic and ?-adrenergic receptors producing cardiac stimulation and renal vasodilation. It increases heart rate and force of contraction. At low infusion rates vasodilatation occurs in the renal, mesenteric, coronary and cerebral beds. At higher rates vasoconstriction in skeletal muscles and a rise in BP.
Drug Interactions ::
Cyclopropane and halogenated hydrocarbon anaesthetics may sensitise myocardium to dopamine and precipitate ventricular arrhythmias. MAO inhibitors prolong and increase dopamine effects. Ergots potentiate vasoconstriction action of dopamine. Alpha-blockers unmask dopamine’s beta action.
