Correct Answer - Option 4 : Reduce high blood pressure

The correct answer is Reduce high blood pressure.

  • Reserpine is used to treat high blood pressure.
    • It also is used to treat severe agitation in patients with mental disorders.
    • Reserpine is in a class of medications called rauwolfia alkaloids.
  • It works by slowing the activity of the nervous system, causing the heartbeat to slow and the blood vessels to relax.

  •  Reserpine lowers blood pressure by slowing down your nervous system.
    • This allows your blood vessels to relax and dilate (widen), which helps your heartbeat more slowly and improves blood flow.
    • Reserpine is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure).
