Feb 12 2023 • 17 mins

Welcome all to IS PHARMACOLOGY DIFFICULT Podcast! I am Dr Radhika Vijay.

This is again a coming of time episode in February. Its fortnightly occurrence reveals a little hectic start of the month.

Well, in today's episode I will be majorly talking about Beta 2 receptor agonist drugs which are short acting. To begin the discussions, I talk about Dobutamine, the rest of the List is long and covers agents like Metaproterenol, Albuterol, Terbutaline, Pirbuterol, Levalbuterol, Fenoterol, Isoetharine, and Procaterol.

I will be covering the features, structural aspects, metabolism, duration of action, effects, uses and adverse effects of these drugs and the highlight points for which they are known for. Last three mentioned drugs are in fact withdrawn, unavailable or have some issues in regard of their efficacy.

With this detailed account of Short acting beta 2 receptor agonists, I will be wrapping up this episode and will be returning back with the account of Long acting beta 2 receptor agonists.
