5. How does Lorcaserin hydrochloride powder works?

(1) Mechanism of action — Lorcaserin hydrochloride powder The Lorcaserin hydrochloride powder works by controlling appetite — specifically by activating brain receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that triggers feelings of satiety and satisfaction. Intake of food is controlled by satiety center, located in ventromedial nucleus of hypothalamus and hunger center present in lateral hypothalamus.Various inputs from higher centers and gastrointestinal tracts converge in arcuate nucleus, where two types of neurons controlling food intake is present. Firstly, food intake stimulatory group producing agouti-related protein and neuropeptide Y; and secondly, food intake inhibitory group containing cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript (CART) and pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons. POMC contains 5-HT 2C receptors, which when activated releases alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alfa-MSH).Both inhibitory and stimulatory neurons further projects paraventricular nucleus in the hypothalamus.Paraventricular nucleus contains melanocyte 4 receptors (MC4R) that inhibits appetiteIn therapeutic doses lorcaserin acts as a selective 5-HT 2C agonist on POMC neurons, which in turn causes release of alfa MSH. 5

Further alfa MSH acts on MC4R in paraventricular nucleus in the hypothalamus, leading to decrease in appetite. In supratherapeutic doses, lorcaserin also acts on 5-HT 2B and 5-HT 2A receptors.

(2) Lorcaserin hydrochloride • Pharmacokinetics: Lorcaserin hydrochloride is rapidly absorbed in gastrointestinal tract and is delayed with fatty meals. Peak plasma concentration is achieved in 1.5-2 h, with half-life of 11h. It is evenly distributed in cerebrospinal fluid and central nervous system. Lorcaserin hydrochloride is 70% plasma protein bound and metabolized in liver, with major metabolite being lorcaserin hydrochloride sulfamate, and its excretion is mainly through urine (92%) and minor excretion through faces.

(3) Lorcaserin hydrochloride powder works on Obesity The lorcaserin hydrochloride 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.
