Twenty hypertensive patients received single oral doses of pseudoephedrine 60 mg or placebo in a double‐blind, randomised, crossover trial. Systolic, diastolic, mean arterial blood pressure, and heart rate were measured at 5 min intervals for 30 min prior to and 210 min after the administration of pseudoephedrine or placebo. Statistically significant differences between the two treatments were observed with changes in systolic blood pressure (P less than 0.03) and heart rate (P less than 0.01) but not in diastolic (P greater than 0.03) and mean arterial blood pressure (P greater than 0.1). Minor differences in the number of reported side effects between the two treatments were not statistically significant. 1989 The British Pharmacological Society
