Name: Procaterol
Name (isomeric): DB01366
Drug Type: small molecule
Description: A long-acting beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonist.
Brand: Pro-Air
Category: Adrenergic beta-Agonists, Sympathomimetics, Bronchodilator Agents
CAS number: 72332-33-3
Indication: For the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Pharmacology: Procaterol is a long-acting beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonist. It is a potent bronchodilator that may be administered orally or by aerosol inhalation.
Mechanism of Action: Beta(2)-receptor stimulation in the lung causes relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle, bronchodilation, and increased bronchial airflow.
Absorption: Because of the small therapeutic dose, systemic levels of salmeterol are low or undetectable after inhalation of recommended doses.
Toxicity: Symptoms of overdose include angina (chest pain), dizziness, dry mouth, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, headache, heart irregularities, high or low blood pressure, high blood sugar, insomnia, muscle cramps, nausea, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, seizures, and tremor.
Affected organisms: Humans and other mammals
Drug interaction:
PhenelzineIncreased arterial pressure
ReserpineIncreased arterial pressure
DesipramineThe tricyclic antidepressant, desipramine, increases the sympathomimetic effect of procaterol.
