Fenoldopam is a synthetic compound that acts as a selective peripheral dopamine D1A receptor agonist. Fenoldopam is used as an antihypertensive agent. It lowers blood pressure through arteriolar vasodilation, decreasing afterload and also through specific dopamine receptors along the nephron promoting sodium excretion. Possible adverse effects are hypotension and increase in intraocular pressure.
