ActionDrugExtra Info
α-1 antagonistused in hypertension as a peripheral vasodilator
α-2 antagonist
α-2 antagonistprodrug for alpha-methylNA, centrally acting antihypertensive
α-1 and non-selective beta antagonist3rd gen, used in heart failure
α-2 agonistslightly selective, centrally-acting antihypertensive (hindbrain), omitting a single dose leads to rebound hypertension
irreversible α-antagonistcan be used in combo with atenolol to prevent effects of large release of catecholamines during phaeochromocytoma excision
β1 agonistused in acute cardiogenic shock and heart failure
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from tyrosine
highly selective β-1 blockerNOT ON DRUGS LIST, vasodilatation through NO release
β-1 antagonistused in hypertension, cardiac dysrhytmia and angina
β-2 antagonist
α-2 antagonist
α-2 agonistfalse transmitter, centrally-acting hypertension
ActionDrugExtra Info
α-1 agonistused to raise BP in acute hypotension
β-2 agonistused in asthma to relax bronchi
non-selective β partial agonistnot useful in angina
partial β agonistantihypertensive
α-2 agonistused in veterinary medicine for sedative effects
non-selective β-agonisthas an antagonistic isomer
non-selective β-antagonistno longer used in hypertension due to bronchoconstriction
non-selective α-antagonistcauses reflex tachycardia and postural hypotension
β blockerclass II and III antidysrhythmic action
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from NA
α and β antagonistused to treat hypertension in pregnancy, four isomers, 3rd gen.
β blockerused in small doses for mild to moderate heart failure
