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!

Rothlin E. 
“Die zentralnervösen Wirkungen von Heilmitteln”. 
Georg. Thieme Verlag Stuttgart. 1954;.
In this lecture to a lay audience, the central effects of the ergot alkaloids are briefly explained. Mention is made of the potentiation by ergot alkaloids of the actions of hypnotics, the central authonomic actions such as the reduction in blood pressure, and dampening of circulatory reflexes and the centres of authonomic regulation in the diencephalon. The normalization of blood pressure in the rat with audiogenic hypertension by means of Hydergine (0.2 mg/kg s.c. daily for 24 days) [a finding not previously reported] demonstrates the effects of Hydergine in neurogenic hypertension. The effects of LSD on mental functions are discussed.
