Beta blockers (selective) Blocks stimulation of beta1-adrenergic receptor sites but usually does not affect beta2-adrenergic receptor sites. Usually end in - olol.
Calcium channel blockers Inhibits the transport of calcium into myocardial and vascular smooth muscle cells. This results in inhibition of excitation-contraction coupling and subsequent contraction. Usually end in - pine.
