ActionDrugExtra Info
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from NA
α and β antagonistused to treat hypertension in pregnancy, four isomers, 3rd gen.
β blockerclass II and III antidysrhythmic action
non-selective β-antagonistno longer used in hypertension due to bronchoconstriction
β-2 agonistused in asthma to relax bronchi
α-2 antagonistprodrug for alpha-methylNA, centrally acting antihypertensive
highly selective β-1 blockerNOT ON DRUGS LIST, vasodilatation through NO release
β-2 antagonist
irreversible α-antagonistcan be used in combo with atenolol to prevent effects of large release of catecholamines during phaeochromocytoma excision
non-selective β-agonisthas an antagonistic isomer
α-1 agonistused to raise BP in acute hypotension
