In a separate study, the researchers looked at alcohol's impact on the part of the brain that is activated in response to alcohol.They found that brain cells from female rats promoted less activity in this region than cells from male rats."This paralleled our behavioral findings," Swartzwelder says."It shows at a cellular level that when it comes to alcohol's basic ability to promote sedation, females are less sensitive." The researchers also found that the female rats showed slight differences in susceptibility to the sedating effects of alcohol at different points in their reproductive estrous cycle, which corresponds to a human female's menstrual cycle.Women achieve higher concentrations of alcohol in the blood and become more impaired than men after drinking equivalent amounts of alcohol.The fact that women tend to weigh less than men is a big reason for this, but not the only one.
This medication can cause a decrease in blood pressure but serious side effects are uncommon.Many women believe that hormonal changes at different times during their menstrual cycle affect their response to alcohol, but Swartzwelder says the Duke findings do not appear to back this up."Cycle stage had a slight impact, but it didn't make a substantial difference," he says.I have a almost 8 yr old cockapoo, Abby She HATES to be groomed HATES it!!I had been giving her Benadryl for awhile..seemed ok with it …but now it’s not having the calming effect on her as it used to and her grooming day is a nightmare!!
We have to muzzle her and myself and husband have to hold her down(well try to hold her) so the groomer can try to get some hair off…problem is her two front legs are a mess…tons of hair on them…she WON’T let the groomer near them it’s awful. Hi Lorie, It’s heartbreaking to hear how Abby responds to her grooming appointments.
