Answer: 

D-penicillamine is a degradation product of penicillin. Only the d-isomer is used because l-isomer causes optic neuritis. It is slowly but adequately absorbed after oral administration. The drug gets metabolised in the body and is excreted in the urine and faeces. ref:http://www.pharmainfo.net/answers/pharmaquestion/what-d-penicillamine
