1. Would you predict the following drugs to cause reflex tachycardia? Explain why or why not. A. Hydralazine (Apresoline) Yes (1 pt), it is a vasodilater that will cause the baroreceptors to activate the sympathetic system to stimulate the heart (2 pts). B. Carvedilol (Coreg) No (1 pt), it blocks both alpha and beta receptors, thus even though it will cause vasodilation (alpha effect), the beta receptors are blocked preventing stimulation of the heart. 2. Below is shown the structures of two drugs. Drug A is an older carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. CH 3 H 2 NO 2 SS O 2 NH 2 NH H 2 NO 2 S COOH Cl Drug A Drug B CH 2 O A.
