On behaviour, ajmaloon showed significant reduction of spontaneous motor activity and rearing. Acid content in gastric secretion and ulcer count was significantly reduced by ajmaloon. 4. Ajmaloon showed no mortality up to the dose of 25.6 gm/kg in mice and 20 mg/kg in rats given orally. LD50 of ajmaloon in mice by intraperitoneal route was 2.5 mg/kg.
