Drug Mode of Action ::  

Betaxolol is a cardioselective Beta-blocker which has greater affinity for ?1-receptors and has little or no effect on ?2-receptors. It lacks intrinsic sympathomimetic but has little membrane-stabilising activity. It also causes the reduction of intraocular pressure by decreasing the production of aqueous humour.

Drug Interactions ::

Increased risk of bradycardia w/ digitalis glycosides. May cause mydriasis w/ epinephrine. Potential additive effect w/ oral Ca channel blockers, ?-adrenergic blockers, antiarrhythmics (including amiodarone), parasympathomimetics, guanethidine. Increased risk of myocardial depression and hypotension w/ peripheral muscle relaxants (e.g. tubocurarine).
