ActionDrugExtra Info
α and β antagonistused to treat hypertension in pregnancy, four isomers, 3rd gen.
α-2 antagonist
α-1 and non-selective beta antagonist3rd gen, used in heart failure
β-2 agonistused in asthma to relax bronchi
non-selective β-antagonistno longer used in hypertension due to bronchoconstriction
α-2 agonistslightly selective, centrally-acting antihypertensive (hindbrain), omitting a single dose leads to rebound hypertension
α-1 agonistused to raise BP in acute hypotension
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from NA
β blockerused in small doses for mild to moderate heart failure
α-2 agonistused in veterinary medicine for sedative effects
highly selective β-1 blockerNOT ON DRUGS LIST, vasodilatation through NO release
irreversible α-antagonistcan be used in combo with atenolol to prevent effects of large release of catecholamines during phaeochromocytoma excision
