Answer

Antihypertensives

These agents help in controlling systemic blood pressure.

Labetalol (Normodyne, Trandate)

Blocks beta1-, alpha-, and beta2-adrenergic receptor sites, thereby decreasing blood pressure.

Hydralazine (Apresoline)

Decreases systemic resistance through direct vasodilation of arterioles.
