Alpha-adrenergic agonists

Medications that selectively stimulate alpha-adrenergic receptors and that are used in psychopharmaco-therapy for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), conduct disorder, self-injurious behavior, opioid detoxification, and substance ABUSE. Alpha-adrenergic AGONISTS are important pharmacotherapies for other conditions as well (e.g., vasoconstrictors in the treatment of shock).
