What is the effects of adrenaline on weight?

Hello. I had a question regarding adrenaline. If adrenaline had an effect on weight , would it be to increase or decrease it. The hypothesis of increase is as follows: adrenaline elevates anxiety , which promotes indiscriminate eating. The hypothesis of decrease is as follows: adrenaline converts fat into something the body can use, which lowers weight. The null hypothesis is that adrenaline has no effect on weight. Which is it?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. As you said Adrinaline increases weight gain as follows, adrenaline elevates anxiety which promotes indescriminate eating, and weight gain. Speaking so logically , you should know that it is a side effect of the drug, and happens only less than 1% of the users.
Decrease in weight is due to adrenaline converts fat into some thing the body can use , which lowers weight. (in your words). It is a pharmacological action and is true in 99% of the cases.
So dont worry about adrinaline it can take care of its actions. thank you.
