IV. BETA-BLOCKING DRUGS IN THE TREATMENT OF ANGINA
Beta adrenoceptor antagonists are effective in preventing
or reducing the incidence of attacks of angina of effort (see
major indications above). They are not recommended for the man-
agement of vasospastic angina. Their properties are discussed in
detail in Chapter 5 . Although all of the "pure antagonist"
á-blockers appear to be equally effective in the prophylaxis of
classic angina, only 2 (propranolol and nadolol) are presently
labeled for this use (see Table ).
