When analyzing its mechanism of action, Lopressor tablets seem to be selective for receptors in heart muscle although it may have some effect on beta2 adrenoreceptors in the blood vessels and airways. Lopressor is thought to works its effects by interfering with the actions of renin, reducing effects of the sympathetic nervous system, and blocking the effects of hormones known as catecholamines peripherally.
