A substance, usually a medication that halts the actions of a chemical that transmits signals between nerves called acetylcholine. The side effects include blurred vision and dry mouth.
Blocking impulses from the part of the nervous system that controls heartbeat, blood pressure and other responses to stress. A drug that interferes with the effects of acetylcholine. These drugs assist with bladder storage by increasing bladder contractions and are used to treat urge incontinence.
an agent that blocks certain receptors on the nerves, lessens muscle spasms and reduces release of liquids by the stomach, mouth, sweat glands, etc.
drug acting against acetylcholine
Antagonistic to the cholinergic nerve fibers.
A group of common side effects of the older group of antidepressants, including dry mouth, constipation, difficulty urinating and blurry vision.
1. adj., Preventing transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses. 2. n., Substance which prevents transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses.
A term that describes the action of certain medications that inhibit the effects of the parasympathetic neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. Among other actions, acetylcholine is responsible in part for the contraction or narrowing of the airways and can make breathing more difficult during respiratory distress. Selected anticholinergic or cholinergic antagonists would facilitate breathing.
a drug which inhibits the action of acetylcholine.
that which impedes the action of acetylcholine (see above). Anticholinergic side effects of drugs include dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision.
a drug which blocks the action of acetylcholine.
The side effects of certain medications that decrease the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and blocks the transmission of parasympathetic nerves reducing spasms of smooth muscle.
Adjective applied to a substance (medication) that reduces the action of acetylcholine.
a substance that opposes or blocks the action of acetylcholine
inhibiting or blocking the action of acetylcholine at a receptor site; "anticholinergic drugs"
Medication that reduces the ability of the detrusor muscle to contract. Effective in the treatment of overactive bladder.
a drug that blocks passage of impulse to the parasympathic nerves. Used commonly in nonspecific treatment of vomiting or diarrhea e.g. atropine.
Anticholinergic drugs inhibit receptors for acetylcholine in the brain (causing problems with memory and confusion), and nerves in other parts of the body (leading to problems with bowel, bladder function, heart rate, blood pressure, and problems with secretions such as dry mouth and reduced sweating) (see cholinergic).
An agent that impedes the impulses or actions of the nerves or fibers of the parasympathetic ganglia, competing with, and blocking the release of acetylcholine at what are called the muscarinic sites. Cholinergic functions affected are those that induce spasms and cramps of the intestinal tracts and allied ducts. Examples: Atropine, Datura, Garrya.
A drug that blocks the action of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter in the brain. Anticholinergic drugs are often effective in reducing the tremor of Parkinson's disease
The action of certain medications that inhibit the transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses and thereby reduce spasms of smooth muscle (such as that, for example, in the bladder).
Parkinson's Drugs (Artane, Cogentin) the group of drugs which decreases the action of acetylcholine. The specified drugs may help reduce rigidity, tremor, and drooling in Parkinson's.
Drugs that block the cholinergic neurotransmitter system
An agent or chemical that blocks or impedes the action of acetylcholine, such as the (also cholinolytic) antidote atropine.
A drug often prescribed for those with indwelling catheters to reduce spasms of smooth muscle, including the bladder. Anticholinergics block certain receptors (acetylcholine), resulting in inhibition of certain nerve impulses (parasympathetic). Brand names include Daricon, ProBanthine, Urispas, Ditropan, and Cystospaz. Side effects may include constipation, nausea, dry mouth, and blurred vision. Caution: combined with alcohol, anticholinergics can cause extreme drowsiness.
A drug that reduces the action of acetylcholine on nerve cells--beneficial in PD for tremor
A substance that blocks the parasympathetic nerves, which act to slow the heart rate, increase intestinal and gland activity, and relax sphincter muscles.
Blocking the action of acetylcholine, one of the chemicals the body makes to help nerve cells communicate with each other. This describes a group of the most common side effects of psychotropic medications, including dry mouth, blurred vision, palpitations, and constipation.
a class of drugs which help to control the urgent need to pee by discouraging the tightening of the bladder muscles before the bladder is full. Some examples:"Pro-Banthine"® (Propantheline Bromide) and "Detrol"® (Tolterodine).
(an-te-kol-ih-ner-jik): An agent that blocks the action of acetylcholine, one of the chemicals the body makes to helps nerve cells communicate with each other. Common side effects of anticholinergic medications include dry mouth, blurry vision, racing heart rate, and constipation.
An anticholinergic agent is a member of a class of pharmaceutical compounds which serve to reduce the effects mediated by acetylcholine in the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
