Nardil was evaluated in 30 patients with cardiovascular disease. Twenty patients had hypertension, 4 had angina pectoris and 6 had both hypertension and angina pectoris. All patients had symptoms of depression and the majority also had anxiety referable to their cardiovascular disease. The hypotensive effect of Nardil was demonstrated in 21 of the 26 patients with hypertension. Three of the 10 patients with angina pectoris had complete remission of symptoms and 4 had reduction of anginal attacks ranging from 60 to 75 per cent. No serious side reactions occurred. No contraindication to the simultaneous use of Nardil and antihypertensive drugs containing rauwolfia or reserpine was established.
