Isoaminile is an antitussive (cough suppressant) used under the trade-name Peracon.[1] It is structurally related to methadone, a synthetic opioid, and can produce hallucinogenic effects at 300 mg doses.[citation needed] The normal therapeutic dose is 40–80 mg of the cyclamate salt, with a maximum of five doses in a 24-hour period.[citation needed] In addition to its central antitussive effects, it is also an anticholinergic, exhibiting both antimuscarinic and antinicotinic actions.[citation needed]
