Active Ingredient Description

Urapidil is a α1-adrenoceptor antagonist and 5-HT1A receptor agonist and consequently inhibits the vasoconstrictor effect of catecholamines. It interacts with peripheral α1-adrenoceptors and central 5-HT1A receptors to produce vasodilation without sympathetic activation.
