An implantable medical device for treatment of cardiovascular disorders by stimulating a selective nerve, the device including an implantable pulse generator, an implantable electrode body and a reservoir. The electrode body includes an electrode electrically connected to the pulse generator. Further, the electrode body is configured to sustain long-term contact between the electrode and the nerve. The reservoir maintains a nerve stimulating drug, such as a veratrum alkaloid, and defines a delivery surface through which the drug is released from the reservoir. Finally, the reservoir is operatively associated with the electrode body to deliver the nerve stimulating drug directly to the nerve. During use, the electrode and the delivered drug stimulate the nerve to effect control over the cardiovascular system of the patient.
