Physostigmine • Found in seed (Calabar bean) of African plant Physostigma venenosum • Reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor • Ordeal Poison: accusation of demonic possession – Winner: vomited (or didn’t chew beans) – Loser: miosis, excessive salivation, decreased bowel/bladder control, seizures, asphyxiation! • Used for glaucoma & belladonna overdosePronunciation: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Physostigmine?s=t
