How are signals form insulin integrated with those from adrealine and contraction to regulate the breakdown or synthesis of glycogen in muscle?

I know that adrenaline stimulates the conversion of ATP to cyclic AMP by activating adenyl cyclase, and I think insulin does the opposite. But how are the signals combined before having a net effect? It would be easier if they were both hormones. Is adrenaline a hormone? Because it is a neurotransmitter specifically acting on target tissues (though Wikipedia says it's a hormone as well). Is the integration of signals just a simple "summation" of the effects? But that would mean there is no integration...
