Active Ingredient History
Pindolol was developed at Sandoz at 1960s. Pindolol is a nonselective beta-adrenergic antagonist (beta-blocker) which possesses intrinsic sympathomimetic activity (partial agonist activity) in therapeutic dosage ranges but does not possess quinidine-like membrane stabilizing activity. The partial beta-adrenergic agonistic activity of pindolol in the heart appears to be completely restricted to the sinoatrial pacemaker. In standard pharmacologic tests in man and animals, Pindolol attenuates increases in heart rate, systolic blood pressure, and cardiac output resulting from exercise and isoproterenol administration, thus confirming its beta-blocking properties. In addition to beta-adrenergic activity pindolol demonstrates mixed agonist-antagonist activity at central 5-HT receptors. Although in accordance with the hypothesis that pindolol increases the antidepressant effects of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors by antagonism of 5-HT at inhibitory 5-HT1A autoreceptors, pindolol possesses partial agonist activity at 5-HT1A receptors. Pindolol tablets are indicated in the management of hypertension. NCATS
