Results of Prolonged Treatment with Pentolinium Tartrate with Special Reference to the Addition of Rauwolfia, Hydralazine
Freis and Wilson reported in this article on the use of the pentolinium tartrate in severely hypertensive patients. They noted
that a combination of the ganglionic-blocking agent, Rauwolfia (a tropical plant whose root was commonly used in herbal treatments),
and the vasodilator hydralazine provided the greatest reduction in blood pressure with the fewest side effects.
