Dear Erowid Readers: We're a small nonprofit that runs the top drug information website in the world. We have only 4 staff but serve 12 million users, and have costs like any big website: servers, power, office space, programs, and staff. To protect our independence, we don't run ads or take government funds. If everyone reading this gave $3, our fundraising would be done today. If Erowid is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and ad-free another year!

Abstract
LSD was found to be a strong antagonist of the constrictor action of 5-hydroxtryptamine (serotonin) on the pulmonary vessels of the cat and the hind leg vessels of the cat and dog, but had only a weak effect on the constrictor actions of adrenaline and noradrenaline. The blocking action of LSD towards 5-hydroxytryptine could not be demonstrated in the rabbit ear vessels because LSD itself had a constrictor action. Gynergen was less effective than LSD in modifying the vasoconstrictor action of 5-hydroxytryptamine on the pulmonary vessels of the cat.
