    Experience with dextro-alprenolol in nine patients has shown that it is relatively ineffective in treating arrhythmias associated with acute myocardial infarction. Marginal effectiveness in the control of ventricular ectopic beats after myocardial infarction is outweighed by an appreciable hypotensive effect with risk of infarction. The drug was ineffective in the management of supraventricular arrhythmias.
