Hyoscine hydrobromide, also known as scopolamine ,hyoscine, levo-duboisine, or
burundanga,and sold as Scopoderm, is a tropane alkaloid drug with muscarinic
antagonist effects. It is among the secondary metabolites of plants from
Solanaceae (nightshade) family of plants, such as henbane, jimson weed, angel's
trumpets, and corkwood .Scopolamine exerts its effects by acting as a
competitive antagonist at muscarinic acetylcholine receptors; it is thus
classified as an anticholinergic, antimuscarinic drug. Although it is usually
referred to as a nonspecific antagonist,there is indirect evidence for m1-
receptor subtype specificity.
