Alprenolol, or alfeprol, alpheprol, and alprenololum (Gubernal, Regletin, Yobir, Apllobal, Aptine, Aptol Duriles), is a non-selective beta blocker as well as a 5-HT1A and 5-HT1B receptor antagonist,[1] used in the treatment of angina pectoris.[2] It is no longer marketed by AstraZeneca, but may still be available from other pharmaceutical companies or generically.
