Ajmaline is a class Ia antiarrhythmic agent. It is often used to bring out typical findings of ST elevations in patients suspected of having Brugada syndrome.

The compound was first isolated by Salimuzzaman Siddiqui in 1931 [1] from the roots of Rauwolfia serpentina. He named it Ajmaline, after Hakim Ajmal Khan, one of the most illustrious practitioners of Unani system of medicine in South Asia.[2]
