3) Behavioral tolerance is change resulting from behavioral mechanisms. It is clear that pharmacodynamic tolerance to ethanol develops. In psychometric testing in both men and animals, chronic exposure to alcohol produces improvement in performance even though plasma concentrations of ethanol are unchanged. 2). Acutely, the opioids bind to specific receptors on noradrenergic nerve endings (those in the brainstem being most critical). The binding decreases the release of norepinephrine in response to a stimulus, with concomitant diminution of response.

Pharmacodynamic Properties of Ethanol The pharmacologic, therapeutic, and toxic effects of a drug on the body (ie, what the drug does to the body) are its pharmacodynamics. The effects of ethanol on various organ systems relate to the pathophysiology of those systems. Central Nervous System At the cellular level, ethanol is essentially a depressant drug, similar to general anesthetics. However, by preferentially depressing those neurons that are normally inhibitory, an overall stimulatory effect on general behavior occurs when ethanol is used in moderate doses.

J Stud Alcohol 1977;38: 1004-1031. Part II The Clinical Pharmacology of Alcohol 4 The Clinical Pharmacology of Alcohol ANTHONY W. Fox, NICOLAS PAUL A. FRIEDMAN and 1. GUZMAN, There is a vast amount of literature about the pharmacology of alcohol. However, there are limitations to the clinical applicability of much of the information, since many of the studies reported are in animals, and extrapolation from animal models to humans can be misleading. Further, most of the literature refers to the properties of ethanol and does not describe adequately the pharmacology of the beverages consumed.
