A direct acting, non-selective adrenergic agonist used for anaphylactic shock, and cardiac arrest
A direct acting, non-selective adrenergic agonist used for hypotension
A direct acting, non-selective adrenergic agonist that is a potent vasodilator and inotropic agent
With low doses of epinephrine, effects of which receptor predominate
With high doses of epinephrine, effects of which receptor predominate
This selective (β1 > β2), direct acting adrenergic agonist is used for acute heart failure and is a potent inotropic agent
These selective (β2), direct acting adrenergic agonists are inhaled and used for asthma and COPD
This selective (β2), direct acting agonist is used PO for bronchodilation for asthma and IV for uterine relaxation in late pregnancy to delay labor
This selective (α1), direct acting agonist is used PO as a decongestant and IV for hypotension and shock
This selective (α1), direct acting agonist is used as a nasal decongestant and can lead to rebound congestion
This selective (α2), direct acting agonist is a centrally acting antihypertensive, given PO and transdermally
This selective (α2), direct acting agonist is a centrally acting antihypertensive, can be used during pregnancy
These indirect acting adrenergic agonists stimulate the release of norepinephrine and dopamine, are peripherally vasoconstrictive and cardiac stimulants
This indirect acting adrenergic agonist is an amphetamine derivative that has similar actions to it
This indirect acting adrenergic agonist inhibits the reuptake of norepinephrine, dopamine, and seratonin and has a local anesthetic effect
This indirect acting adrenergic agonist increases norepinephrine release and can cause a hypertensive crisis
This mixed acting agonist (D1 = D2 >>β1 >> α1) is used for cardiogenic shock and acute renal failure
This mixed acting agonist is similar in its effects to epinephrine in high doses
This mixed acting agonist is a stereoisomer of ephedrine and is used as an OTC decongestant
This non-selective ɑ-blocker is used for catecholamine excess, as in Pheochromocytoma, is irreversible and lasts for 4 days
This non-selective ɑ-blocker is also used for Pheochromocytoma and the reversal of ischemia from injection of epinephrine (for example)
This selective ɑ-blocker relaxes smooth muscle of the bladder and prostate, used for BPH and 3rd line against HTN, has 1st dose sycope effect
This selective ɑ-blocker is a specific antagonist for ɑ1A receptors in the prostate
This non-selective β-blocker has a high first pass effect and is used for HTN, arrhythmias, angina, migraine headaches, essential tremor etc.
This non-selective β-blocker is used for glaucoma, has lesser CNS effects than Propranolol and is renally excreted
This non-selective β-blocker is used as a topical treatment for glaucoma
This non-selective β-blocker is also a partial agonist for β1 and β2
This selective β1-blocker loses selectivity for β1 at higher doses, is used primarily for HTN and heart failure, is safer for asthmatics and diabetics
This selective β-blocker is also a partial agonist of β1 receptors
This α and β (α1 > α2) antagonist has more pronounced vasodilation than other β-blockers and is used for rapid reduction in blood pressure
This α and β (α1 > α2) antagonist has more pronounced vasodilation than other β-blockers and is used primarily for heart failure
What is the principle post-ganglionic neurotransmitter in the sympathetic nervous system
D1 dopamine receptors in smooth muscle have what action
Which receptor (α1, α2, β1, β2) is pre-synaptic, while the others are post-synaptic
