What is Scopolamine

Updated on February 19, 2011

Scopolamine for motion sickness

Scopolamine is an  anticholinergic normally used for motion sickness. I also found a few side effects of course. The known side effects are confusion, agitation, rambling speech, hallucinations, paranoid behaviors, and delusions. Dam half the country must be on this crap! Scopolamine is plant derived from deadly nightshades. I know now everybody wants some right? Not!

Scopolamine was one of the ingredients used in some over-the-counter sedatives before in the United States. I believe that it was in Sominex but they took it out in the 90s. They actually were able to use it because it once had a classification of being a antihistamines.

You sort have to watch out for any of the over the counter products in the USA. Its difficult to figure out the drug industry. So its just best not to use any of that crap. Even if you believe the BS that they are telling you about a drug, it normally has more contraindications than therapeutic value. Most times you can find an alternative to taking drugs for your ailments.

Scpoolamine is plant derived but it is still a  tropane alkaloid drug with muscarinic antagonis effects

Jimson weed

Jimson weed is the name for a plant known  as Datura stramonium, this plant has been used as a medicine and intoxicant for 100s of years all over the world. One of the main components of this weed is scopolamine.

Side effects  incoherent speech, impaired coordination; rapid heart beat, hot skin. If you get enough into your system you can experience seizures, intense visual  hallucinations, or it can totally stop your heart by making it beat so fast it cant beat any more.

Red as a beet, dry as a bone, blind as a bat, mad as a hatter" are all phrases that have used to describe Jimson's effects. I have never tried it but it really doesn't seem like something most people would like and their have been almost 1000 reported poisoning with Jimson Weed. I recommend you stay away from it. Hey it has scopolamine in it. Sure there is a place for almost every drug but I have decided that my body is not made for most of the drugs that they are trying to tell us we need these days.

Make your own decisions and ingest into your body what ever you want to. Its your life but remember you might need to use your body for longer than you expect. So trying to take care of it the best you can only makes sense.

Jimson Weed ?
