Ibogaine. Tabernanthe iboga.

Botanical name:

Ibogaine.—This alkaloid was separated by Dybouski and Landrim (Nouv. Rem., 1905) from the roots of the Tabernanthe Iboga, a plant found in the Congo. In overdose it causes hallucination and generally paralysis, with death due to failure of the respiratory muscles. In dose of one-third to one-half grain it is said to act as a stimulant to the nervous system somewhat similar to caffeine.

The Dispensatory of the United States of America, 1918, was edited by Joseph P. Remington, Horatio C. Wood and others.
