> I take Hydergine (ergoloid mesylates), which is classified as a sympatholytic adrenergic antagonist. What does this mean, exactly? I know what an antagonist is. I guess that sympatholytic means something to do with the sympathetic nervous system and the releasing of, or the freeing of or some such thing. I know that sympathetomimetic agents imitate the chemicals of the sympathetic nervous system (ie epinephrine). But what do sympatholytics do? Why are they typically used? What are other examples besides Hydergine?

A sympatholytic is a drug that acts in a way opposite to the
sympathetic nervous system. (A sympathomimetic acts in
a way that imitates stimulation of the SNS.) Another
example of a sympatholytic would be propranolol.

Can I ask what you're using the hydergeine for? Just
