All are true about beta blockers except
|A||Atenolol is longer acting than metoprolol|
|B||Labetalol has both alpha and beta blocking action|
|C||Carvedilol has alpha agonistic and selective beta1 blocking action|
|D||Nadolol has longest half life|
Labetalol and carvedilol are blockers of both alpha as well as beta receptors.
Esmolol is the shortest acting and nadolol is the longest acting beta blocker.
Atenolol is not lipid soluble. It is excreted by the kidney. These agents are longer acting than lipid soluble Beta blockers like metoprolol.
