Anisodamine, also known as 7β-hydroxyhyoscyamine, is an anticholinergic and α1 adrenergic receptor antagonist used in the treatment of acute circulatory shock in China.[1] It is given orally or by injection, as a racemic mixture (racanisodamine) or as a hydrobromide salt.[2] Eye drops at 0.5% concentration for slowing the progression is also available in China.[3]

Anisodamine is a naturally occurring tropane alkaloid found in some plants of the Solanaceae family.[4] Its Mandarin Chinese name 山莨菪 is given after Anisodus tanguticus (Chinese: ; pinyin: shān làng dàng).[5]
