It is always a good idea to do the research prior
to taking a new drug.
I don't have much additional information that might help get it out of your system. According to a drug monograph in my cardiovascular pharmacotherapeutics book, the use of reserpine, which is the extract from rauwolfia, causes depletion of norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin. The reserpine-induced adrenergic blockade destroys the storage vesicles of adrenergic neurons, and causes sympathetic and parasympathetic dysfunction. This can mess up a lot of things in the body, and make people very sick. It takes weeks for the destroyed storage vesicles to regrow. The severity of its CNS side effects is the main reason reserpine isn't used much anymore. It is still used sometimes as a sedative, hypnotic (for treating depression), and a tranqulizer for horses!!!
in veterinary medicine. In any case, this is something to stay away from!
