Chemical Cholinergic Agents

Name Cholinergic Agents
Equivalent Terms Acetylcholine Agents | Agents, Acetylcholine | Agents, Cholinergic | Agents, Muscarinic | Agents, Nicotinic | Cholinergic Drugs | Cholinergic Effect | Cholinergic Effects | Cholinergics | Cholinomimetics | Drugs, Cholinergic | Effect, Cholinergic | Effect, Muscarinic | Effect, Nicotinic | Effects, Cholinergic | Effects, Muscarinic | Effects, Nicotinic | Muscarinic Agents | Muscarinic Effect | Muscarinic Effects | Muscarinics | Nicotinic Agents | Nicotinic Effect | Nicotinic Effects
Definition Any drug used for its actions on cholinergic systems. Included here are agonists and antagonists, drugs that affect the life cycle of ACETYLCHOLINE, and drugs that affect the survival of cholinergic neurons. The term cholinergic agents is sometimes still used in the narrower sense of MUSCARINIC AGONISTS, although most modern texts discourage that usage.
