PHARMACOLOGY: Cardiovascular effects of mirabegron
In clinical studies, mirabegron has been shown to cause a small increase in heart rate with a slight increase in QTc interval, as indicated on electrocardiograms. The mechanisms of these effects are unclear. The findings of a recent study might provide some new clues, although, the relevance of these new observations to the treatment of patients with overactive bladder syndrome have yet to be established.
