Description: Acebutolol is a synthetic butyranilide derivative with hypotensive and antiarrhythmic activity. This drug is a cardioselective beta-1 adrenergic antagonist with little effect on the bronchial receptors. Having stabilizing and quinidine-like effects on cardiac rhythm, as well as weak inherent sympathomimetic action, Acebutolol is used in ventricular arrhythmias. (
