  4. An alkaloid ester extracted from the leaves of plants including coca. It is a local anesthetic and vasoconstrictor and is clinically used for that purpose, particularly in the eye, ear, nose, and throat. It also has powerful central nervous system effects similar to the amphetamines and is a drug of abuse. Cocaine, like amphetamines, acts by multiple mechanisms on brain catecholaminergic neurons; the mechanism of its reinforcing effects is thought to involve inhibition of dopamine uptake.

  10. A powerful narcotic alkaloid, C17H21NO4, obtained from the leaves of coca. It is a bitter, white, crystalline substance, and is remarkable for producing local insensibility to pain. It is classified as addictive and is not available in the U. S. without a prescription, but is nevertheless one of the most widespread illegal drugs of abuse. It is used in several forms, including small pellets of free base, called crack. Most of the cacaine illegally used in the U.S. is imported. dictgcide_fs
  11. A crystalline alkaloid, C17H21NO4, obtained from coca. C. hydrochloride (C. muriate, Cocainae hydrochloras, U. S., Cocainae hydrochloridum, B. P., Cocainum hydrochloricum, G. P.), C17H21NO4.HCl, and other salts (C. hydrobromide, C17H21NO4.HBr, C. benzoate, C. oleate, etc.), applied to mucous membranes or beneath the skin, produce local anaemia by constringing the vessels, and local anaesthesia, and, applied to the eye, produce mydriasis and dilatation of the palpebral opening—effects due to anaemia of the iris and stimulation of the sympathetic nerve. They are used for the production of local anaesthesia, especially in the eye, nose, throat, rectum, and urethra, in all painful conditions of these parts and in operations or manipulations performed upon them; hypodermically in minor operations in all parts of the body; in the nose to reduce swelling, as in coryza and internally to relieve nausea and gastric irritability. Dose of hydrochloride, 0.2-0.5 gr. (gm. 0.015-0.030); strength for local application, 2 to 10 per cent., according to the delicacy and absorbent power of the part to which it is applied. C. discs (Lamellae cocainae, B.P.) contain each gr. 0.02; and Injectio cocainae hypodermica, B. P., contains 10 per cent. of c. hydrochloride. The habitual use of c. (C. habit, Cocainism) produces rapid deterioration of the moral sense and various nervous symptoms. na
