What are Nitrates

What are Nitrates (Organic Nitrates)? Nitrates (Organic Nitrates)By Dr. Mahnoor Javed (Pharm D) What are nitrates (organic nitrates): Nitrates (Organic nitrates), (and nitrites) used in the treatment of angina pectoris. They are simple nitric and nitrous acid esters of glycerol. They differ in their volatility. For example, isosorbide dinitrate and isosorbide mononitrate are solids at […]

Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)

Angiotensin Receptor Blocker By Dr. Mahnoor Javed (Pharm-D) ANGIOTENSIN II is a very potent chemical formed in the blood that causes muscles surrounding blood vessels to contract, thereby narrowing the vessels. This narrowing increase the pressure within the vessels and can cause high blood pressure (hypertension). Angiotensin receptor II blockers are medications that block the

ACE INHIBITORS By Dr. Kinza Munir (Pharm-D) ACE inhibitors, or angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, is a class of drugs that interact with blood enzymes to help relax your veins and arteries to lower your blood pressure. ACE inhibitors prevent an enzyme in your body from producing angiotensin II, a substance that narrows your blood vessels. This narrowing


What are Calcium Channel Blockers?

Calcium Channel Blockers By Dr. Syeda Tahira Kazmi (pharm-D) Cardiac effects Calcium-Channel Blockers decrease contractility (negative inotropy) Calcium-Channel Blockers decrease heart rate (negative chronotropy) Calcium-Channel Blockers decrease conduction velocity (negative dromotropy) Vascular effects Smooth muscle relaxation (vasodilation) Calcium channel blockers are prescription medications that relax blood vessels and increase the supply of blood and oxygen

How Beta blockers works?

Beta blockers By DR. Maria Hassan (Pharm-D) Beta blockers, also called as beta–adrenergic blocking agents a class of drugs that bind to beta-adrenoceptors and  prevent the binding of norepinephrine and epinephrine to those receptors.So this inhibits normal sympathetic effects, Therefore, beta-blockers/beta–adrenergic blocking agents are also called sympatholytics drugs.that causing decreased heart rate,cardiac contractility,cardiac work load,(AVN)atrioventricular node
