Hexacyclonate (Gevilon) is a stimulant drug. It was previously used for the treatment of alcoholism [Chesrow EJ, Sabatini R, Musci JP, Kaplitze SE, Marquardt GH. Adjunctive treatment of the chronic alcoholic with hexacyclonate sodium."Illinois Medical Journal". 1962 May;121:546-8.] and for increasing motivation in elderly patients, [Morrison BO. Pharmaco-motivation of the geriatric patient: a preliminary report on hexacyclonate. "Journal of the Louisiana State Medical Society". 1962 Jan;114:23-6.] but is now mainly used for the treatment of hyperlipoproteinaemia. [Milewicz A, Plamieniak Z, Bohdanowicz-Pawlak A.
