This is a list of adrenergic drugs. These are pharmaceutical drugs, naturally occurring compounds and other chemicals that influence the function of the neurotransmitter epinephrine (adrenaline).

Receptor ligands[edit]

α1-adrenergic receptor ligands[edit]

Agonists[edit]

Antagonists[edit]

Many tricyclic antidepressants, tetracyclic antidepressants, antipsychotics, ergolines, and some piperazines like buspirone, trazodone, nefazodone, etoperidone, and mepiprazole antagonize α1-adrenergic receptors as well, which contributes to their side effects such as orthostatic hypotension.

α2-adrenergic receptor ligands[edit]

Agonists[edit]

Antagonists[edit]

Many atypical antipsychotics and azapirones like buspirone and gepirone (via metabolite pyrimidinylpiperazine) antagonize α2-adrenergic receptors as well.

β-adrenergic receptor ligands[edit]

Agonists[edit]

Antagonists[edit]

Reuptake inhibitors[edit]

Norepinephrine transporter (NET) inhibitors[edit]

Vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT) inhibitors[edit]
