The structure of 8-chlorotheophylline

8-Chlorotheophylline (1,3-dimethyl-8-chloroxanthine or 8-CTP) is a stimulant drug of the xanthine class that is closely related to caffeine in both its chemical structure and effects. It is mainly used as a wakefulness-promoting agent found within dimenhydrinate, where it counteracts the drowsiness effects present with diphenhydramine.
