Drugs Affecting the Parasympathetic/Sympathetic Nervous System

Muscarinic Agonists prototype? Bethanechol
Bethanechol Routes? Po(will need larger dose) or SQ(has more adr effects)
The antidote of Muscarinic Agonist toxicity? Why? Atropine...it is a Muscarinic Antagonists and will indirectly give the opposite effect of Bethanechol.
Muscarinic Antagonists prototype? Atropine
Atropine Routes? Topical, PO, IV, IM, SQ
The antidote of Muscarinic Antagonists toxicity? Physostigmine...it is an cholinesterase inhibitor, will stop the breakdown of ACh.
What two Muscarinic Antagonists drugs will tx OAB? Tolterodine/Detrol (Get off the toilet) and Oxybutynin/Ditropan (stop the running)
Cholinesterase Inhibitors Reversible prototype? Neostigmine(short neo)
Neostigmine Routes? PO(need larger dose), SQ, IV, IM. note that it cannot cross the BBB
What is the antidote for TX Cholinesterase Inhibitors Reversible OD? Atropine...because it will stop the muscarinic receptor from being excessively stimulated.
What are the four treatment steps from irreversible cholinesterase inhibitors? 1.Ventilation 2.Atropine(stimulate muscarinic) 3.Pralidoxime(reverse effects) 4.Diazepam
Prototype for Nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockers? Tubocuraine
Tubocuraine Routes? IV, IM
What is the antidote for Atropine OD Physostigmine
What is the prototype for Depolarizing neuromuscular blockers? Succinylcholine
Succinylcholine routes? IV, IM
What enzyme breaks down Succinylcholine? pseudocholinesterase
Cholinesterase inhibitors enhance the effects of Succinylcholine? cholinesterase inhibitors delay the degradation of succinylcholine
