Carvedilol is class of antagonists of both α and β andrenoceptor. Like Labetalol, Carvedilol is also reversible of β-blockers with concurrent α1- blocking agents that lead to peripheral vasodilation and reduce blood pressure. Carvedilol exerts antihypertensive effect partly by reducing total peripheral resistance and vasodilation by blocking α-1 adrenoreceptors and by inhibiting β-adrenoreceptor-mediated compensatory mechanisms. Carvedilol differ from other β-blockers because it doesn’t produce vasoconstriction and therefore useful in treatment of patients where increased peripheral vascular resistance is undesirable.
