ActionDrugExtra Info
α-2 antagonist
β-2 antagonist
α-1 and non-selective beta antagonist3rd gen, used in heart failure
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from NA
non-selective β-agonisthas an antagonistic isomer
β blockerused in small doses for mild to moderate heart failure
β-1 antagonistused in hypertension, cardiac dysrhytmia and angina
partial β agonistantihypertensive
irreversible α-antagonistcan be used in combo with atenolol to prevent effects of large release of catecholamines during phaeochromocytoma excision
α-2 agonistslightly selective, centrally-acting antihypertensive (hindbrain), omitting a single dose leads to rebound hypertension
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from tyrosine
β1 agonistused in acute cardiogenic shock and heart failure
non-selective α-antagonistcauses reflex tachycardia and postural hypotension
ActionDrugExtra Info
