Sandril
Oral


This medication is used to treat mild high blood pressure (hypertension) and with other medications to treat more severe high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Reserpine may rarely be used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (e.g., agitated psychotic states) in those who can not tolerate the usual treatments. Reserpine belongs to a class of drugs known as centrally acting antihypertensives. It works by decreasing the levels of certain brain chemicals (neurotransmitters), thereby slowing the heartbeat, relaxing blood vessels, and decreasing blood pressure.
