Anticholinergics - Pharmacology

Anticholinergics drugs (see chart) inhibit acetylcholine by occupying the acetylcholine receptors. Anticholinergics are also called parasympatholytics, cholinergic blocking agents, cholinergic or muscarinic antagonists, antiparasympathetic agents, antimuscarinic agents, or antispasmodics.

Anticholinergics drugs block parasympathetic nerves thereby enabling impulses from sympathetic nerves to take control. Anticholinergic and adrenergic drugs produce many of the same responses.
