Two groups of hypertensives and a group of migraine sufferers were tested during treatment with the nonselective β-blocker propranolol and the β1-selective metoprolol. During treatment with propranolol, an increased platelet aggregability and a decrease in platelet content of cyclic AMP were seen when compared with metoprolol treatment. In addition, propranolol treatment increased the plasma level of adrenaline as well as the euglobulin clot lysis time.
