  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Drugs that enhance the antihypertensive effects of beta blockers, such as ACE inhibitors, calcium-channel blockers, and clonidine may be useful in controlling hypertension. Drugs that cause hypotension such as aldesleukin and general anaesthetics also enhance the antihypertensive effects of beta blockers while other drugs, for example NSAIDs, antagonise the antihypertensive effects. Use of beta blockers with other cardiac depressants such as antiarrhythmics and rate-limiting calcium channel blockers can precipitate bradycardia and heart block; the combination of intravenous verapamil and beta blockers should especially be avoided. Beta blockers may potentiate bradycardia due to digoxin. In diabetic patients beta blockers can reduce the response to insulin and oral hypoglycaemics through their effects on pancreatic beta receptors. Drugs that reduce absorption include aluminium salts and bile-acid binding resins such as colestyramine. Metabolism of some beta blockers can be increased by drugs such as barbiturates and rifampicin and decreased with drugs such as cimetidine, erythromycin, fluvoxamine, and hydralazine. Drugs that alter hepatic blood flow also affect metabolism of some beta blockers. For example, cimetidine and hydralazine decrease hepatic blood flow and this contributes to the decreased hepatic clearance seen with these drugs. ,

►  Contraindication : asthma, Bronchospasm, cardiogenic shock, hypotension, metabolic acidosis, second -or- third degree AV block, severe peripheral arterial disease, Sinus bradycardia, uncontrolled heart failure, history of obstructive airways disease, Patients with phaeochromocytoma should not be given beta blockers without alpha-adrenoceptor blocking therapy,

  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Antagonize sympathetic stimulation of β1 adrenergic receptors in SA and AV nodal cells, thereby decreasing slope of phase 4 depolarization (important at SA node) and prolonging repolarization (important at AV node).,
