It is an anesthetic acting on the nerve endings, with a good selectivity on sensory nerves. It lowers arterial pressure and acts as a vasodilator.

Tropane alkaloid17H23NO4–>, from plants of the Convolvulaceae family.

Convolamine presents an anesthetic acting on the nerve endings with a lower activity level than that of Convolvine. A 2 % solution lowers the sensitive nerve fibers conductivity with a much higher and longer activity as compared with the effect on motor nerve fibers. As with Convolvine, Convolamine (1/1000 to 1/3000) inhibits cardiac activity, dilates the vessels from isolated ear of rabbit at 3 mg/kg and lowers the arterial pressure in decerebrated cats.
