Emotional disturbances may play a significant role in the production and accentuation of symptoms with organic background in cardiovascular disease. Alleviation of some of the emotional components by tranquilizing medication may be followed by a substantial relief of symptoms. The tranquilizing drugs bring about relief from mental tension, anxiety and agitation and emotional distress by distinct calming effect, with minimal or no sedation. These drugs are welcome to our medical armamentarium and are a valuable adjunct in the treatment of heart disease.
