Raw Lorcaserin hydrochloride hemihydrate powder (856681-05-5) Description
Lorcaserin hydrochloride hemihydrate powder is a hydrate that is the hemihydrate form of lorcaserin hydrochloride. Used as an anti-obesity drug. It has a role as an appetite depressant and a serotonergic agonist. It contains a lorcaserin hydrochloride.
Raw Lorcaserin hydrochloride hemihydrate powder is use to treat obesity associated with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or type 2 diabetes.
The FDA approved the Raw Lorcaserin hydrochloride hemihydrate powder for people who are obese (with a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher) or who are overweight (with a BMI of 27 or above) and also have at least one weight-related health condition such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
Raw Lorcaserin hydrochloride hemihydrate powder works by controlling appetite — specifically by activating brain receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that triggers feelings of satiety and satisfaction. Serotonin is also involved in mood; many antidepressant drugs work by preventing the reuptake of serotonin and keeping brain receptors bathed in the chemical. Researchers at Arena say their drug is designed to seek out only the serotonin receptors that affect appetite.
Lorcaserin hydrochloride hemihydrate powder (856681-05-5) Mechanism of Action
Lorcaserin is believed to decrease food consumption and promote satiety by selectively activating 5-HT2C receptors on anorexigenic pro-opiomelanocortin neurons located in the hypothalamus. The exact mechanism of action is not known.
Lorcaserin at the recommended daily dose selectively interacts with 5-HT2C receptors as compared to 5-HT2A and 5-HT2B receptors (see Table 5), other 5-HT receptor subtypes, the 5-HT receptor transporter, and 5-HT reuptake sites.
Application of Lorcaserin hydrochloride hemihydrate powder (856681-05-5)
- Appetite depressant: Agent that is used to decrease appetite.
- serotonergic agonist: An agent that has an affinity for serotonin receptors and is able to mimic the effects of serotonin by stimulating the physiologic activity at the cell receptors. Serotonin agonists are used as antidepressants, anxiolytics, and in the treatment of migraine disorders.
