PROPANOLOL (Inderal, Inderal – LA generic)A CARDIOVASCULAR BETA BLOCKER
TEAM 2 MEMBERS:
What are Cardiovascular agents?Wide variety of drugs used for management and treatment of several different conditions of the heart and blood vessels.Classes:AntihypertensivesThiazide DiureticsBeta BlockersACE InhibitorsCalcium Channel blockersAngiotensin II Receptor BlockersAlpha 1 Blockers
What are Beta blockers?Slide4
Name and ClassificationDrug Name:PROPRANOLOL: generic Inderal; Inderal Long acting (LA) - Brand nameClassification:KEY Beta Blocker
PharmacodynamicsAll Beta blockers have similar mechanisms of action which is competitive blockade of Beta Adrenergic receptor. Effects of the Propranolol on the body includes:Highly selective to Beta 1 & Beta 2 receptors
Decreasing heart rate
conduction and cardiac output
Decrease Cardiac work
Decrease the secretion of renin
PharmacokineticsLipid soluble (lipophilic)Excretion -------- Hepatic (Liver)Absorptions rate --- 90%Availability after first pass --- 30%Peak time of concentration ------1-1.5hrsHalf life ------
; 8-11hrs for long acting
Duration of action -----
Protein bound --------
Hepatic Metabolism -------
Indication/Recommended DosageHypertension: 120-240mg/day bid -tid; max dose 640mgAngina: 120-160 mg/day; max dose 320 mg Essential tumor:
120mg/day; max dose 320 mg
ContraindicationThe use of Propranolol is contraindicated in the following conditions: Sinus bradycardiaGreater than first degree heart blockCardiogenic shockPulmonary edemaSevere Asthma or COPDRaynaud’s diseasePregnancy (second and third trimesters)Uncompensated heart failureHypersensitivitySlide9
Propranolol PrecautionsAvoid in patients with anaphylactic allergic reactionsMay mask signs and symptoms of hypoglycemiaCautiously use in patients with hepatic/ renal
use in patients with reactive airwaySlide11
Review of LiteratureApproved in 1967, Propranolol is one of the most frequently prescribed beta-adrenergic blocking agents to treat hypertension, angina, and arrhythmias. Usually used in combination with other cardiac drugs, for example: ACE inhibitors and diuretics to control blood pressure.Off-label uses include management of migraines, tremors, and anxietySlide12
Implementation Plan: Prescribing and Cultural ConsiderationsDiuretics are the first line for African-Americans since Beta Blockers can be less predictableAsian American were less responsive to beta blockers than CaucasiansLanguage Barrier- Providing patient with information on the regimen in the appropriate language, or with the help of a translatorLanguage barriers and cultural barrier were are the top predictor of non adherence in elderly Chinese Americans Slide13
Implementation Plan: Age, EthnicityAge: The polypharmacy that accompanies increased comorbidities in age decreases compliance. Medication information in a larger fontReinforcing regimen at follow up visitsAsking patient to bring medication bottles to all appointment
Remember that hypertension has increasing morbidity in younger populations.
Beta Blockers should be avoided as first line in youth due to delayed growth and lipid panel abnormalities Slide14
Implementation Plan: AdherenceA telephone follow-up to Medicare patients, by pharmacists, has shown to increase patient adherence with home antihypertensive medications Frequent dosing and increased cost decreases adherence Patient’s are more likely to be adherent to a regimen that is started during a hospital admission because they relate the medication to the diseaseSlide15
Special ConsiderationsPregnancy and Lactation: Category C - Teratogenic and embryo toxic effects have been demonstrated in animals. Give drugs only if the potential benefit justifies the
to the fetus
Safety and effectiveness of beta blockers, with the
propranolol, has not been established in children.
There is potential for drug accumulation in the elderly
, therapeutic doses must be small and titrated slowly in
with liver impairments:
Propranolol should be administered
caution to patients with impaired renal and hepatic
half-life of propranolol may be increased in
Evidenced Based GuidelinesThe American Association of Cardiology (AAC) in conjunction with American Heart Association (AHA) emphasize education on risk reduction for coronary arterial disease.
The AAC/AHA update recommend that all patient with cardiac
seen by a cardiologist before initiating a beta blocker.
Beta blocker therapy should be used in all patient with left ventricular
Allow one to two months for a drug trial with beta blockers to adjust
and monitor for therapeutic response and adverse reactions.Slide17
