ActionDrugExtra Info
α-2 antagonistprodrug for alpha-methylNA, centrally acting antihypertensive
α-2 antagonist
β1 agonistused in acute cardiogenic shock and heart failure
non-selective β-agonisthas an antagonistic isomer
α-2 agonistfalse transmitter, centrally-acting hypertension
β-2 agonistused in asthma to relax bronchi
partial β agonistantihypertensive
irreversible α-antagonistcan be used in combo with atenolol to prevent effects of large release of catecholamines during phaeochromocytoma excision
α-1 agonistused to raise BP in acute hypotension
α-2 antagonist
β-1 antagonistused in hypertension, cardiac dysrhytmia and angina
β blockerclass II and III antidysrhythmic action
non-selective α-antagonistcauses reflex tachycardia and postural hypotension
ActionDrugExtra Info
α-2 agonistslightly selective, centrally-acting antihypertensive (hindbrain), omitting a single dose leads to rebound hypertension

highly selective β-1 blockerNOT ON DRUGS LIST, vasodilatation through NO release
β blockerused in small doses for mild to moderate heart failure
α-2 agonistused in veterinary medicine for sedative effects
non-selective β-antagonistno longer used in hypertension due to bronchoconstriction
α-1 antagonistused in hypertension as a peripheral vasodilator
β-2 antagonist
non-selective β partial agonistnot useful in angina
