  1. Block the effects of epinephrine and norepinephrine from beta-adrenergic receptors throughout the body (beta 1 and beta 2); decrease HR and BP associated with anxiety, has NO effect on cognition
  2. potentiate the action of gamma-aminobutyric or GABA, including any other inhibitory transmitters in the CNS resulting in decreased anxiety. Most agents cause a decrease in CNS excitability
  3. not recommended,
  4. additive effect with CNS depressants (e.g., sedatives, psychotropic drugs, anticonvulsants, antihistamines, alcohol)
  5. binds the neuroreceptors for serotonin and dopamine in the brain and increases norepinephrine metabolism to relieve anxiety.

  3. alpha 2-adrenergic agonist Patient EducationDo not discontinue abruptly,

          

  4. alpha 2-adrenergic agonist moaBind to α2 receptors in the brain to decrease presynaptic calcium levels, and inhibit the release of norepinephrine (NE), leading to decreased sympathetic tone
