Mecamylamine, a New, Orally Effective, Hypotensive Agent
Freis and Wilson reported here on mecamylamine, a new, orally-administered, ganglionic-blocking agent. They determined that
mecamylamine appeared to be a very effective antihypertensive agent, especially when combined with small doses of reserpine
(another ganglionic-blocker) or hydralazine (a vasodilator). Mecamylamine was long considered an ideal treatment for moderately
and severely hypertensive patients.
