Reverse Tolerance

Posted by Joey B. Wong on August 04, 2016  /   Posted in Uncategorized

The act of the reversal of the physiological tolerance developed to a drug or chemical. Drug tolerance is when the body adapts to continued application of a chemical drug, as a response to correct body/mind function (homeostasis), this is an undesirable effect as it often leads to continued increasing of drug dosages to achieve the same effect.

The reversal of drug tolerance means drugs and medicines can stay effective at the normal dosage or in low doses, this saves on the cost of medication, and mitigates the side effects that come with increasing dosages on drugs, often in cases of high dosages of drugs the side effects begin to outstrip the positive effects, thus rendering the drug completely ineffective at any dose.

Drug tolerance is also the main cause of drug addiction, as the physiological adaptation results in “rebound” symptoms when the drug the body has adapted to is no longer present, causing a plethora of undesirable side effects.
