Clobenzorex Mechanism of Action
Sympathomimetic amine that acts on the ventrolateral nucleus of the hypothalamus, increasing the release of norepinephrine and dopamine in the synaptic spaces and decreasing their reuptake in the presynaptic nerve endings, which is why there is an increase in the concentrations of adrenaline and dopamine. Norepinephrine curbs appetite by activating alpha 4 and beta 1 receptors in the hypothalamic nuclei.
