Its empirical formula is C33H40O9N2. This drug has several varied pharmacological effects.2 These consist of hypotension, bradycardia, hypothermia, increase in gastrointestinal motility, myosis, and general tranquilization.3 Because of its effect in lowering blood pressure, it is used in certain hypertensive states by itself and in combination with other drugs.* Some of the undesirable effects of this drug in the human are mental depression,5 diarrhea, and weight gain.
