8-Chlorotheophylline, also known as 1,3-dimethyl-8-chloroxanthine, is a stimulant drug of the xanthine chemical class, with physiological effects similar to caffeine. It is combined with pharmaceutical drugs to form stable salts, such as the antiemetic dimenhydrinate, which is broken down into diphenhydramine, the active antiemetic, and 8-Chlorotheophylline, to ward off drowsiness.
