Resumo To better evaluate the non-medical use of anticholinergic substances in Brazil, a review of the local literature was performed. Synthetic compounds such as triexyphenidyl (Artane(R)), benactizine (Asmosterona(R)), dicyclomine (Bentyl(R)) as well as Datura sp. tea were reported as being used by first and second grade students and by street children of several Brazilian cities. in several cases the percentage of youngsters indulging in such use was higher than the percentage found for cocaine, barbiturates, cough syrups and amphetmine-related drugs. Several cases of patients seeking treatment for dependence or for acute psychotic symptoms were also described.
