Scopolamine is a prescription drug used to treat muscle spasms, Parkinson’s disease, vomiting, irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, and dizziness that often accompanies motion sickness.

Although scopolamine is a completely legal drug prescribed by a physician, it has been used for illicit purposes in various economies such as UK and Colombia. Commonly scopolamine is also called as Devil’s Breath or burundanga.

It has made headlines around the world, from Canada to Australia to Colombia, and there were at least 1,200 known cases reported in 2012 of the drug being used to force people – including politicians – into doing illegal things.

Use of scopolamine in Alzheimer's disease may prove useful as a diagnostic or staging test in the evaluation of the cholinergic system in dementia, which provides opportunities to the researchers to explore application of these drugs for other neurological disorders, which in turn is driving the market growth over the forecast period.
