increase lipoprotein lipase synthesis
background image Therapeutic Class: Antihyperlipidemic Therapeutic Use: Treatment of hyperlipidemia not responding to diet and 
weight loss; to slow progression of coronary artery disease (CAD) when 
combined with a bile acid sequestrant
Pharmacologic Class: Other antihyperlipidemics; vitamin Mechanism of Action: Inhibits release of free fatty acids from adipose tissue, 
increases rate of triglyceride removal of plasma, reduces LDL and 
triglyceride levels and increases HDL levels
DOXAZOSIN Trade Name: Cardura Therapeutic Class: Antihypertensive; treatment of benign prostatic 
hyperplasia (BPH)
Therapeutic Use: To treat hypertension; treatment of BPH Pharmacologic Class: Alpha-1 adrenergic blocker Mechanism of Action: Selective for alpha 1 adrenergic receptors, thus causes

vasoconstrictor, and decreases production of aldosterone, resulting in 
decreased renal sodium absorption
HYDRALAZINE Trade Name: Apresdline Therapeutic Class: Antihypertensive; treatment of heart failure Therapeutic Use: Treatment of hypertension that is refractory to other 
Pharmacologic Class: Direct-acting inhibitor Mechanism of Action: Relaxes arterial smooth muscle by inhibiting IP3 
background image HYDROCHLOROTHIAZINE Trade Name: Microzide Therapeutic Class: Antihypertensive; treatment of edema Therapeutic Use: To treat hypertension with edema; also approved to treat 
heart failure, and nephrotic syndrome
Pharmacologic Class: Thiazine diuretic Mechanism of Action: Decreases reabsorption of sodium in the kidney by 
inhibiting the sodium/chloride cotransporter in the distal tube of the nephron
NIFEDIPINE Trade Name: Adalat Therapeutic Class: Antihypertensive; treatment for angina Therapeutic Use: To treat hypertension and variant or vasospastic angina Pharmacologic Class: Calcium channel blocker Mechanism of Action: Selectively blocks calcium channels in myocardial 
muscle and vascular smooth muscle
ATENOLOL Trade Name: Tenormin Therapeutic Class: Antianginal; antihypertensive Therapeutic Use: Treatment of heart failure, hypertension, angina, and MI Pharmacologic Class: Selective beta1-adrenergic blocker Mechanism of Action: Selectively blocks beta1-adrenergic receptors in the 
heart; slows heart rate and reduces contractility
LOSARTAN Trade Name: Cozaar Therapeutic Class: Antihypertensive Therapeutic Use: Used alone or in combination therapy for treatment of 
hypertension; treatment of diabetic nephropathy
Pharmacologic Class: Angiotensin II receptor blocker Mechanism of Action: Selectively blocks angiotensin II receptors; blocks 
vasoconstriction, and release of aldosterone due to interruption of the renin-
angiotensin-aldosterone system
background image PROPANOLOL Trade Name: Inderal Therapeutic Class: Class II antidysrhythmic; antihypertensive Therapeutic Use: Treatment of cardiac dysrhythmia, hypertension, angina, 
and migraine headaches, and for prevention of MI
Pharmacologic Class: Beta-adrenergic antagonist (nonselective) Mechanism of Action: Nonselective beta-adrenergic blocker; affecting beta1 
receptors in the heart, and beta2 receptors in pulmonary and vascular 
smooth muscle; reduces heart rate, slows myocardial conduction velocity, 
and lowers BP
DIGOXIN Trade Name: Digitek Therapeutic Class: Positive inotrope Therapeutic Use: To increase cardiac output, alleviating symptoms of heart 
failure and improving exercise tolerance
Pharmacologic Class: Cardiac glycoside Mechanism of Action: Inhibits Na-K+ ATPase, and increases intracellular 
calcium concentrations in cardiac cells
FUROSEMIDE Trade Name: Lasiz Therapeutic Class: Antihypertensive, treatment or edema and heart failure Therapeutic Use: Treatment of acute heart failure, to remove edema, 
especially when cardiac output and renal flow are severely diminished
Pharmacologic Class: Loop diuretic Mechanism of Action: Prevents renal absorption of Na and Cl in the loop of 
LISINOPRIL Trade Name: Prinivil Therapeutic Class: Antihypertensive, treatment for heart failure Therapeutic Use: Treatment of hypertension, heart failure, and improvement
