Reserpine drug information

Reserpine is a medication prescribed to treat high blood pressure, movement problems (dyskinesia) or hot flashes in mentally ill people. Most people with high blood pressure do not feel disabled, but even if you do not feel unwell, it should be treated so that it does not damage your heart and blood vessels. If left untreated, high blood pressure can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and other serious illnesses.
