Beta-adrenergic blockade decreases norepinephrine release in humans.

Abstract

Beta-Adrenergic blockade with propranolol (PRP) has been reported to cause an increase in plasma norepinephrine (NE) levels in humans, which suggests that a reflex increase in sympathetic nervous system (SNS) vasoconstrictor tone compensates for the hypotensive effect of beta-adrenergic blockade. However, plasma NE levels are an indirect measure of SNS… (More)
