nadolol (nadō´lol),

n brand name: Corgard;
drug class: nonselective β-adrenergic blocker;
action: competitively blocks stimulation of β-adrenergic receptors within the heart; produces negative chronotropic and inotropic activity, slows conduction of AV node, decreases heart rate, which decreases oxygen consumption in myocardium; also decreases activity of the renin-aldosterone-angiotensin system;
uses: chronic stable angina pectoris, mild to moderate hypertension.
