  18. Beta Blocker
    Beta blockers, also known as beta-adrenergic blocking agents, are medications that reduce your blood pressure. Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of the hormone epinephrine, also known as adrenaline. When you take beta blockers, the heart beats more slowly & with less force, thereby reducing blood pressure. Beta blockers also help blood vessels open up to improve blood flow.
  19. Calcuim Channel Blockers
    • Calcium channel blockers prevent calcium from entering cells of the
    • heart and blood vessel walls, resulting in lower blood pressure. Calcium
    • channel blockers, also called calcium antagonists, relax and widen
    • blood vessels by affecting the muscle cells in the arterial walls.

    • Some calcium channel blockers have the added benefit of slowing your
    • heart rate, which can further reduce blood pressure, relieve chest pain
    • (angina) and control an irregular heartbeat.

  32. Nitrates
    Nitroglycerin spray and tablets are used to treat episodes of angina (chest pain) in people who have coronary artery disease (narrowing of the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart). The spray and tabletsmay also be taken just before activities that may cause episodes of angina in order to prevent the angina from occurring. Nitroglycerin extended-release (long-acting) capsules are used to prevent episodes of angina in people who have coronary artery disease. The extended-release capsules can only be used to prevent angina attacks; they cannot be usedto treat an attack once it has begun. Nitroglycerin is in a class of medications called vasodilators. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not need to work as hard and therefore does not need as much oxygen.
