Scope note: Cualquier fármaco utilizado por sus acciones en sistemas colinérgicos. Entre ellos se encuentran los agonistas y antagonistas, fármacos que afectan el ciclo de la ACETILCOLINA, así como fármacos que afectan la supervivencia de las neuronas colinérgicas. El término "fármacos colinérgicos" sigue usándose a veces en el sentido más limitado de AGONISTAS MUSCARÍNICOS, aunque los textos más modernos no preconizan su uso.

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.
