β-1 antagonistused in hypertension, cardiac dysrhytmia and angina
α-2 antagonistprodrug for alpha-methylNA, centrally acting antihypertensive
non-selective β-agonisthas an antagonistic isomer
α-1 antagonistused in hypertension as a peripheral vasodilator
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from tyrosine
non-selective β-antagonistno longer used in hypertension due to bronchoconstriction
β1 agonistused in acute cardiogenic shock and heart failure
adrenoreceptor agonistproduced in the adrenal gland from NA
β blockerused in small doses for mild to moderate heart failure
ActionDrugExtra Info
partial β agonistantihypertensive
highly selective β-1 blockerNOT ON DRUGS LIST, vasodilatation through NO release
α-2 antagonist
β blockerclass II and III antidysrhythmic action
α-1 and non-selective beta antagonist3rd gen, used in heart failure
irreversible α-antagonistcan be used in combo with atenolol to prevent effects of large release of catecholamines during phaeochromocytoma excision
β-2 agonistused in asthma to relax bronchi
non-selective α-antagonistcauses reflex tachycardia and postural hypotension
