M-cholinomimetics, n-cholinomimetics, including anticholinesterase

Acetylcholine chloride, carbachol – the so-called direct cholinomimetics have a stimulating effect on cholinergic transmission. They directly interact with m- and n-cholinergic receptors. However, anticholinesterase agents (physostigmine, galantamine, neostigmine methyl sulfate, pyridostigmine bromide, aminostigmine, rivastigmine, ipidacrine, etc.) are more often used for this purpose. They inhibit cholinesterase – an enzyme that destroys endogenous acetylcholine, cause…
