carbamylcholine direct cholinergic: treats atony of GI tract and stimulate uterine contractions in pigs

pilocarpine direct cholinergic: reduces intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma
metochlopramide direct cholinergic: control vomiting and reduce gastric tract emptying
edrophonium indirect cholinergic: diagnose myasthenia gravis
neostigmine indirect cholinergic: treat urine retention, GI atony, and as an antidote to neuromuscular blocking agents
physostigmine indirect cholinergic: similar to neostigmine, urine retention, GI atony, and an antidote to neuromuscular blocking agents
organophosphate compounds indirect cholinergic: insecticide dips, can result in toxicity
demecarium indirect cholinergic: prevention management of glaucoma
pyridostigmine indirect cholinergic: treatment of myasthenia gravis
