Nesiritide (Natrecor) compensates for cardiac deterioration by reducing preload and afterload. Dipyridamole (Persantine) exhibits mild inotropic action and decreased platelet aggregation. It would not be used in acute heart failure. Methimazole (Tapazole) corrects hyperthyroidism by inhibiting synthesis of the thyroid hormone. Physostigmine (Antilirium) increases the concentration of acetylcholine to potentiate the action of ACE on the skeletal muscle.
