Epinepherine. My favorite drug.

Epinepherine is like a double-edged sword in my opinion. I don't know how Epinepherin works for other but for me it make me faster, stronger, a lot tougher and things seems to slow down (it's actually your brain speeding up). The trade-off is usually I get tunnel vision and sometimes I feel numb all over, which isn't good. Punching with a numb fist isn't the greatest experience.

To have epinepherine flowing in your body is good before a fight, but not too much. Some people experience "adrenaline dump" pre fight, and may throw up to make the body lighter.

None that I can think of, no.

stick a fork in a socket. When the shock stops your heart, the medics will stab a biga$$ needle straight into it and pump you full of epi.

Nah just kidding They'll just use the AED and jump start you again.

But you could still try that fork thing.

The inverted-U function

"The relationship between changes in arousal and motivation is often expressed as an inverted-U function (also known as the Yerkes-Dodson law). The basic concept is that, as arousal level increases, performance improves, but only to a point, beyond which increases in arousal lead to a deterioration in performance. Thus some arousal is thought to be necessary for efficient performance, but too much arousal leads to anxiety or stress, which degrades performance." (Encyclopaedia britannica 2005)

Different activities however will have their own optimal level of arousal, so you have to decide how much is the right amount.

Epinepherine is the official name of adrenaline, and I'm having so much problem trying to spell adreniline, because I have no idea how adrelarine is spelt. So I'm sticking with epinepherine because it's a lot easier then adrenarine.

As for where to aqcuire this drug? Watch porn, stand near the edge of a cliff, throw a stone and try to headbutt it in air, put your face near an angry rottweiler or something. Anything that makes you excited usually means that your body starts to secrete epinepherine in order to make the body ready for 'flight or fight' response.

Or you could have it pumped into you via injections or nose sprays (people with diabetes sometimes prefer this method as they have to regulate where they inject themselves).

The most painful one is to have it directly injected into the heart, which is very rare and only common in the battlefield when someone's heart is about to stop or has stopped.

I love epinepherine overdose. It's awesome. Everything becomes blurry and you throw up. Try running for 40 minutes, then have a insane dog chase you around. You'll see how awesome it is when your body is driven on only by fear and adrenalarine (Damn! I can't spell the friggin' word).

Yes, your body releases epinepherine when sexually aroused. It's to make your body ready for. . err... uhmm.. action?

Yes exactly.

Side effects of too much epinepherine in your body includes;
  • Vomitting
  • Tunnel Vision
  • Numbness
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Over-strain of muscles including the heart

Basically, when epinepherine flows through your body, the body starts to divert blood to other areas of the body which isn't needed at the moment such as stomach, liver, pancrease and kidney to heart, lungs and muscles. Your body will pump more blood faster, and your heart starts pumping like a madman while your lungs have to take in more air, faster. Blood is transported to the brain in greater amount, faster.

What happens when your body can't handle the over-burden? Instead of being able to perform better, the body deteriorates instead.

Imagine you have this big dam, and you suddenly force all that water through a small crack in the damn wall. The wall may break down. Same thing with your blood vessels. More blood transported faster is dangerous.

Now what I've mentioned. Don't be freaked out by it. The only way you can get adrenaline overdose is if you inject it into your body, or sustain pro-longed periods of adrenaline secretion i.e. you do on purpose (which isn't likely).

But like all drugs, too much is bad. And epinepherine is only good in small amounts to make the body ready, not fuel the body for the whole conflict.

Since I'm really really bored I might as well add this;

Quote:

Disruption of the sexual response and the digestive system are common negative results. Diarrhoea, constipation, and difficulty maintaining sexual arousal are typical examples. These are functions which are controlled by the parasympathetic nervous system and therefore suppressed by sympathetic arousal. Prolonged stress responses may result in chronic suppression of the immune system, leaving the sufferer vulnerable to infection by bacteria and virii.




Some other effects of adrenaline rush to the body;

  • Acceleration of heart and lung action
  • Inhibition of stomach and intestinal action
  • Constriction of blood vessels in many parts of the body
  • Liberation of nutrients for muscular action
  • Dilation of blood vessels for muscles
  • Inhibition of lacrimal glands (responsible for tear production) and salivation
  • Dilation of pupil
  • Relaxation of bladder
  • Inhibition of erection


Do note that you can get an erection if you have only small natural amounts of epinephrine in your body, but exceed an amount and you'll have an inhibitation to do so.

If you're asking, no I'm not a doctor, so my answer might be wrong. I'm an adrenaline junkie.

I don't think he was talking about Ephinephrine in drug form. lol.

Epinephrine is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical) that is released by a part of your brain called the medulla.

Basically, You freak out before a match and your brain releases epinephrine along with other neurotransmitters. This boosts the supply of both oxygen and glucose to your brain and muscles and you become faster, stronger, and quicker to react. It also stops some of your body's processes so that you do not waste any energy on unnecessary things and have more to use if you need to run or fight.
