  • Rilmenidine (dose of 1 mg once or twice a day) is the first oxazoline compound with antihypertensive properties. Its effects on lipid parameters [total cholesterol, HDL and LDL fractions, triglycerides, apolipoprotein A1 and B, lipoprotein (a)] were compared under double-blind conditions and in parallel groups to those of captopril (50 to 100 mg per day, in 2 divided doses) over a period of 8 weeks, in 51 hyperlipidaemic hypertensive patients [age: 56.3 +/- 1.5 years, systolic and diastolic… CONTINUE READING
