Equine veterinary journal, 38 (S36). pp. 262-266.Full text not available in this repository. (Request a copy from the Strathclyde author)
Adrenergic activity accompanies intense exercise and mediates physiological and metabolic responses to exercise. Guanabenz, an antihypertensive drug marketed for human usage, depresses brain vasomotor and cardioaccelerator centres, blocks peripherally adrenergic neurons and is reportedly used as a calming agent in horses but little is known of its effects in the species.
