Moxonidine is indicated for the management of mild to moderate essential or primary hypertension in adults. In different animal models, moxonidine has been shown to be a relatively potent antihypertensive agent. Available experimental data suggest that the site of the antihypertensive action of moxonidine is the central nervous system (CNS). Moxonidine has been shown to bind to I1-imidazoline receptors and to a lesser extent α2-adrenoreceptors. The therapeutic action of moxonidine appears to result from interaction with I1 and α2- receptors located within the rostral ventrolateral medulla, leading to a reduced activity of sympathetic nerves.
