The hormone that counteracts adrenaline is Norepinephrine which also underlies the fight or flight response, along with epinephrine, directly increasing your heart rate and then also triggering the release of glucose from energy stores, and increasing blood flow to skeletal muscle.

The drug that blocks adrenaline in your body are Beta Blockers.

Beta Blockers are medications that reduce your blood pressure.

Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of the hormone epinephrine, also known as adrenaline.

Adrenaline usually takes 1 hour to 2 hours to wear off and leave your body.

Adrenaline medication is sometimes used to treat severe asthma attacks and allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis) in an emergency situation.

Adrenaline medication should also not be consumed with alcohol and the drug class that adrenaline is in is Nonselective adrenergic agonist.

Some side effects of adrenaline are sweating as a reaction to stress, feeling lightheaded due to changes in blood and oxygen supply, and a change in temperature as a result of the blood redirection.

The effects of adrenaline on the body can last for up to 1 hour after an adrenaline rush.

Adrenaline which is also known as epinephrine, is a hormone and medication.

Adrenaline is also normally produced both by the adrenal glands and by a small number of neurons in the medulla oblongata, where it acts as a neurotransmitter involved in regulating visceral functions

Our bodies naturally produce adrenaline but it can also be taken through medication.
