8.Antiadrenergic agents ( Antisympathetic drugs / Sympatholytics ) Combined Alpha and Beta Blockers

Antiadrenergic agents inhibit the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. They act by blocking adrenergic receptors in target organs or by inhibiting the synthesis, storage, or release of endogenous catecholamines (mainly norepinephrine). This class of medications is most commonly used for the treatment of ischemic heart disease and hypertension, although antiadrenergic agents may also be used for urinary retention secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia and for psychiatric conditions such as anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder.
