Beta Blockers Overview - Beta Adrenergic Antagonists

Cardioselective:

M - Metoprolol 

A - Atenolol 

N - Nebivolol 

B - Bisoprolol 

A - Acebutolol

E - Esmolol 



Mixed alpha/beta: Carvedilol, Labetalol



Non-Selective: Propranolol, Nadolol



Beta Blockers are commonly used drugs and there is a lot to know about them! Here are some general important points. Remember that we have B1 receptors in our hearts while B2 receptors are in our lungs (remember albuterol is a B2 agonist). Because of this, it's sometimes better to use cardioselective agents in patients who have respiratory conditions. We also have carvedilol and labetalol which are classified as beta blockers, but actually are mixed alpha1 and beta blocking agents.
