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