Fenoldopam and Beta blocker

Fenoldopam is an antihypertensive agent, which acts as a selective D1 receptor partial agonist.

Fenoldopam's concomitant use with a beta-blocker should be avoided if possible. Unexpected hypotension can result from beta-blocker inhibition of sympathetic-mediated reflex tachycardia in response to fenoldopam.
