Anticholinergic hallucinogens refer to a class of drugs including Atropine and Scopolamine.

Anticholinergic hallucinogens are a class of drugs that affect the brain's neurotransmitter system by blocking acetylcholine receptors, which can lead to altered states of consciousness, including hallucinations. These drugs are also known as deliriants, and they are commonly abused for their psychoactive effects.

Some examples of anticholinergic hallucinogens include:

  • Diphenhydramine (Benadryl)
  • Scopolamine
  • Atropa belladonna (deadly nightshade)
  • Datura stramonium (jimsonweed)
  • Hyoscyamus niger (henbane)

These drugs are often found in over-the-counter medications, such as allergy medication, and are sometimes used recreationally for their hallucinogenic effects. They can cause a range of side effects, including confusion, memory loss, delirium, and even death in high doses.
