Mechanism Of Action Guanabenz’s antihypertensive effect is thought to be due to central alpha-adrenergic stimulation, which results in a decreased sympathetic outflow to the heart, kidneys, and peripheral vasculature in addition to a decreased systolic and diastolic blood pressure and a slight slowing of pulse rate. Chronic administration of guanabenz also causes a decrease in peripheral vascular resistance.
Description of the Drug: Guanabenz is an alpha-2 adrenergic agonist used to treat hypertension.
