wherein R.sup.1 is isopropyl or t-butyl, R.sup.2 is carbamoyl or alkylcarbamoyl of up to 4 carbon atoms, A is alkylene of 1 to 5 carbon atoms or alkenylene of 2 to 5 carbon atoms and R.sup.3 is hydrogen, halogen or alkyl, alkenyl or alkoxy each
of up to 4 carbon atoms; and a non-toxic, pharmaceutically acceptable acid-addition salt thereof.
2. The method of claim 1 wherein the alkanolamine derivative is 1-p-carbamoylmethylphenoxy-3-isopropylamino-2-propanol or a non-toxic, pharmaceutically acceptable acid-addition salt thereof.
