Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
Blocking of beta-1 adrenoceptors in the heart inhibits the effects of adrenaline and noradrenaline, leading to a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure. Beta-2 adrenoceptor inhibition in the juxtaglomerular apparatus results in inhibition of the production of renin, leading to inhibition in the production of angiotensin II and aldosterone production and inhibiting vasoconstriction and water retention.
