    So beta 2 agonist has below properties according to FC:

    1. vasodilation
    2. bronchodilation
    3. increased lipolysis
    4. increased release of insulin
    5. decreased uterine contractions = tocolysis
    6. relaxation of ciliary musculature
    7. increased production of aq. humor

    To me 3 and 4 seem to be conflicting. Does anyone have any insight on this?

    Also I don't think that 6 is correct. AFAIK the sole innervation for the ciliary muscles is parasympathetic, hence why cycloplegia is a finding with antimuscarinics but not beta agonists.
