Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): NMDA receptor antagonist
Any substance that inhibits the action of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. They tend to induce a state known as dissociative anesthesia, marked by catalepsy, amnesia, and analgesia, while side effects can include hallucinations, nightmares, and confusion. Due to their psychotomimetic effects, many NMDA receptor antagonists are used as recreational drugs.

General Comment
2010-12-13 Rolicyclidine is described as a dissociative anaesthetic drug with hallucinogenic and sedative effects similar to, but slightly less potent than, phencyclidine (PCP), and with less stimulant effects. Instead it induces a sedative effect described as being somewhat similar to a barbiturate, but with additional PCP-like dissociative, anaesthetic and hallucinogenic effects. Due to its similarity in effects to PCP, it was placed on the Schedule I list of illegal drugs in the 1970s, although it was never widely abused and is now little known.
