SummaryCarvedilol is a potent antihypertensive agent with a dual mechanism of action. At relatively low concentrations it is a competitive β-adrenoceptor antagonist and a vasodilator, whereas at higher concentrations it is also a calcium channel antagonist. The antihypertensive activity of carvedilol is characterized by a decrease in peripheral vascular resistance, resulting from the vasodilator activity of the compound, with no reflex tachycardia, as a result of β-adrenoceptor blockade.
