ABSTRACT
Acetazolamide used alone produced a minor antihypertensive effect. Although the addition of reserpine enhanced the hypotensive response, the therapeutic combination of acetazolamide and reserpine appears to be less effective than combined thiazide-Rauwolfia regimens. The antihypertensive effectiveness of diuretic agents is roughly proportional to their natriuretic abilities. Their antihypertensive mechanism is briefly discussed.
