ActionDrugExtra Info
β-1 antagonistused in hypertension, cardiac dysrhytmia and angina

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