Mode of action of nebivolol
Nebivolol is a cardioselective beta-blocker that works exclusively on the beta-1 receptors of the heart when ingested into the body. Beta-1 receptors are special binding sites of the sympathetic fibers of the autonomic nervous system, which are normally activated by the body’s own messengers adrenaline and norepinephrine. Nebivolol displaces these endogenous messenger substances at the receptors and thus suppresses their effect. At the heart’s beta-1 receptors, nebivolol significantly lowers blood pressure while decreasing the number of heartbeats.
