Pharmacology – ALPHA & BETA BLOCKERS – ADRENERGIC ANTAGONISTS ( MADE EASY)

Adrenergic antagonists are a group of drugs that inhibit the function of adrenergic receptors.
Alpha and beta receptor blockers allow blood to flow more easily thereby lowering blood pressure and the heart rate, which makes these drugs useful in treatment of cardiovascular diseases (e.g. hypertension, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, and angina). This pharmacology lecture covers topics such as location and function of alpha and beta adrenergic receptors, mechanism of action of adrenergic antagonists: alpha selective blockers, alpha non-selective blockers, beta selective blockers, beta non-selective blockers, first, second and third generation beta blockers. Adrenergic antagonists mentioned include: Phentolamine, Phenoxybenzamine, Prazosin, Doxazosin, Terazosin, Tamsulosin,…
