Annotation
general or unspecified; prefer specifics; note entry term CHOLINERGIC EFFECT: use only for the cholinergic effect of a chemical substance
Scope Note
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.
