Medications were given in a double-blind manner. Eventually there was a one-week period in which the alternate medication was given, again in a double-blind manner. Patients were examined at the outpatient clinic every week. After the trial test as described above, patients answered a questionnaire about symptoms, and cardiac output was measured in the supine position according to the method of Teichholz [7], by use of an echocardiograph.

Each patient had been examined at our outpatient clinic. Diagnoses had been established by the conventional criteria [8]. Raynaud's disease had been diagnosed in twenty patients, Raynaud's syndrome with connective tissue disease in eleven: five with systemic sclerosis, three with reumatoid arthritis, two with CREST* syndrome, one with polymyositis. 7 years).

Septal and posterior left ventricular wall thickness measured during echocardiography were generally not increased (data not shown), indicating that on the whole the groups did not have evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy.
