Alkaloids containing dimethylamine are collectively known as dimethylamines. In general piperidine based alkaloids tend to be more potent and longer lasting than their corresponding dimethylamine and pyrrolidine counterparts.

Many allylbenzenes are known to form piperidines, dimethylamines and pyrrolidines in vivo. According to the current Oilahuasca Theory, this is how nutmeg and similar allylbenzene containing herbs produce their psychedelic activity.
