Heptaminol is an amino alcohol which is classified as a Cardiac stimulant(positive inotropic action).It also increases coronary blood flow along with mild peripheral vasoconstriction. It is sometimes used in the treatment of low blood pressure, particularly orthostatic hypotension as it is a potent positive Inotrope (improving cardiac contraction). It is classified as a doping substance. In 2008, the cyclist Dmitriy Fofonov was tested positive at the Tour de France.[1] In June 2010, the swimmer Frédérick Bousquet was tested positive for the substance, allegedly for buying a medicine from the pharmacy.[2] In 2013, the cyclist Sylvain Georges was tested positive at the Giro d'Italia.[3] In 2014, baseball player Joel Piniero tested positive [4] as well as St. Louis Cardinals minor league baseball player Yeison Medina.
