Summary of Clinical Use
Oral administration of betaxolol is used to treat hypertension. In the UK, glaucoma and ocular hypertension are the only approved indications for the use of betaxolol.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Betaxolol selectively blocks catecholamine stimulation of β1-adrenoceptors in the heart and vascular smooth muscle, resulting in reduced heart rate, cardiac output, and blood pressure.
