The Circulatory Effects of Roniacol
A Physiologic Study in Normal Man
The vasodilatory effects of nicotinic alcohol tartrate (Roniacol) were tested on 12 normal adult males, utilizing digital venous occlusion plethysmography, brachial and digital artery oscillometry and flicker photometry. Orally administered Roniacol in single doses up to 200 mg. has no significant effect on the auscultatory blood pressure, pulse rate, or peripheral arterial circulation of normal individuals.
