Labetalol is a combined alpha- and beta-adrenoceptor blocking agent for oral and intravenous use in the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems.
Metoprolol (lopressor, toprol-xl)
Lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) treats heart failure and heart attacks, lowers high blood pressure, manages chest discomfort, and must be taken with food. Toprol XL (metoprolol succinate) lowers blood pressure and regulates heart rate.
Because propranolol (Inderal) is a non-selective beta blocker that relaxes blood vessels throughout the body, it can be used to treat a variety of conditions, such as high blood pressure, chest pain, and migraines. However, the most common indication of propranolol is hyperthyroidism.
Beta Blockers Applications
Beta blockers, also known as beta-adrenergic blocking agents, are drugs that lower blood pressure, they do this by preventing the hormone epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, from having its blood pressure-lowering effects. Doctors frequently prescribe beta-blockers for the following heart conditions:
Beta blockers reduce blood pressure by making the heart beat more slowly and forcefully, which blocks the effects of the hormone epinephrine, sometimes known as adrenaline. Beta blockers also help widen veins and arteries to enhance blood flow.
Blood pressure is high
Beta blockers reduce blood pressure by making the heart beat more slowly and forcefully, which blocks the effects of the hormone epinephrine, sometimes known as adrenaline. Beta blockers also help widen veins and arteries to enhance blood flow. While they are not the first-line drug for hypertension, they may be used as alternatives.
Guidelines advocate beta blockers as the first-line treatment in patients with angina, either on their own or in combination with a calcium channel blocker. They lower the oxygen demand of the heart and decrease the frequency of angina attacks.
Your doctor can perform tests to determine if you have an arrhythmia. While medications are used to control abnormal heart rhythms, ablation procedures can completely cure some types of arrhythmia. Once treated, whether through ablation or ongoing medications, the majority of patients with a heart rhythm issue can return to normal activity.
