Hallucinogenic Plants


Atropine-like reactions may occur with several plants, some of which are used by drug abusers. The major clinical manifestations are nausea, dry skin & mouth, tachycardia, mydriasis, delirium, hallucinations, convulsions and urinary retention (the anticholinergic toxidrome).

The most common plants are:

  • Datura and Brugmansia species (aka Jimsonweed, Thornapple, Stinkweed, Jamestownweed, Devil's apple, Angel's trumpet, Loco seed, Melpitte, Green dragon, Stramonium and Apple of Peru)
  • Atropa belladonna (Deadly nightshade)
  • Duboisia myoporoides (Corkwood)

Specific treatment consists of sedatives (diazepam), anticholinesterase inhibitors (physostigmine, tacrine), and avoidance of anticholinergic drugs (e.g. neuroleptics).
