Adenosine is a nucleoside, which is essentially an anti-arrhythmic agent used for the treatment of irregular heartbeats. It works by slowing down the electrical conduction of the heart. The medication also normalizes or slows down the heart rate.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by the judicious and hardworking Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides compounding pharmacy treatments to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and from one side of the country all the way to the other.
Adenosine easily combines with phosphate to generate numerous chemical compounds, including adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and adenosine monophosphate (AMP). It is commonly used as a heart medicine.
AMP is consumed orally for the treatment of shingles as well as a blood disorder known as porphyria cutanea tarda. ATP is best used by keeping it under the tongue to make the physical energy higher.
Patients can also be given ATP intravenously to keep a check on blood pressure during a surgery or anesthesia as well as to treat cancer-related weight loss, lung cancer, cystic fibrosis, high blood pressure in lung arteries, multiple organ failure, and acute kidney failure. Medical practitioners may also prescribe it for cardiac stress tests.
Healthcare providers give adenosine intravenously for the treatment of certain kinds of irregular heartbeat, pulmonary hypertension, nerve pain, and surgical pain. Adenosine is also prescribed for blood pressure control during surgery or anesthesia, and for cardiac stress tests that are actually heart tests.
A treatment provider may also inject the medication into the area around the spinal cord for the treatment of nerve pain. Adenosine phosphate is injected into the muscle for the treatment of poor blood circulation, genital herpes, cold sores, shingles, neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, itchiness, swollen tendons, pain, bursitis, and varicose veins.
How does it work?
Adenosine blocks the faulty circuitry in the heart, which is causing an irregular rhythm of the heart. ATP helps in preventing changes in energy metabolism which causes cancer related weight loss.
Intravenous administering of adenosine leads to a transient heart block in the atrioventricular node. Consequently, it enables a treatment provider to examine a patient for for coronary artery blockages.
Administering the drug also helps in reducing the flow of blood into the coronary arteries past the occlusion. It dilates the other coronary, while the segment beyond the occlusion is already dilated optimally. The process results in less quantity of blood reaching the ischemic tissue. Adenosine helps in identifying the rhythm in patients who are suspected to suffer from a supra ventricular tachycardia (SVT).
Adenosine can get rid of certain SVTs such as any reentrant arrhythmias that need to re-enter with the help of the AV node. The medication is considered a Class V anti-arrhythmic agent because of its impact on SVTs that are dependent on AV node.
Treatment with adenosine can cause a few patients to experience nausea, diaphoresis, lightheadedness, temporary chest rash, and facial flushing due to the vasodilatory impacts.
