Used against hypertension, often together with diuretics.
Explanation: "Alpha-antagonist" is how we say it in case presentations in hospitals here in the USA ("alpha blocker" is correct but more colloquial).
Good luck Marie
Assessing microcirculation in familial dysautonomia by laser Doppler flowmeter. Weiser M, Hilz MJ, Bronfin L, Axelrod FB.
Department of Physiology and Neuroscience, New York University Medical Center, New York, USA.
Microcirculatory vasomotor responses to an alpha-adrenergic agonist and an antagonist were assessed in 11 familial dysautonomia and nine control subjects by laser Doppler flowmetry. Using two iontophoresis machines, blood flow in the midclavicular areas was continuously monitored by two channel laser Doppler flowmeter. Simultaneously, the **alpha-antagonist** (0.5 mM phentolamine hydrochloride) and a control solution (0.9% saline) were iontophoresed at 200 microA for 15 min.
In clinical studies of antihypertensive response, difficulties of interpretation have been created by the failure to take into account the statistical association between the initial blood pressure and magnitude of the blood pressure fall and also the potential influence of age-related alterations in pharmacokinetics and drug disposition. Only a few studies have integrated pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic information to quantify more accurately responsiveness to **alpha-antagonist drugs**.
Explanation: I am not sure of these, just trying to help a bit.
Flomax is described in the PDR as an antagonist of alpha adrenoceptors in the prostate.
But, in general, diuretics are combined with other cardiovascular agents. One category of these drugs is called alpha adrenergic blocking agents.
Hope this helps
