The dextrorotary (R)-(+)-enantiomer is the most pharmacologically active, although a variety of related derivatives have been studied.
Side effects including chest pain (suggestive of possible cardiovascular toxicity) have been seen following recreational use of diphenylprolinol, although it was combined with glaucine in a party pill product, thus making it impossible to say for certain which drug was responsible.
