ActionDrugExtra Info
β blockerused in small doses for mild to moderate heart failure
non-selective β-agonisthas an antagonistic isomer
partial β agonistantihypertensive
non-selective β-antagonistno longer used in hypertension due to bronchoconstriction
β-2 agonistused in asthma to relax bronchi
α-1 antagonistused in hypertension as a peripheral vasodilator
α and β antagonistused to treat hypertension in pregnancy, four isomers, 3rd gen.
α-2 agonistfalse transmitter, centrally-acting hypertension
irreversible α-antagonistcan be used in combo with atenolol to prevent effects of large release of catecholamines during phaeochromocytoma excision
β blockerclass II and III antidysrhythmic action
α-2 antagonist
α-1 agonistused to raise BP in acute hypotension
non-selective α-antagonistcauses reflex tachycardia and postural hypotension
ActionDrugExtra Info
