Main article: Antitremor drugs

An antiparkinsonian drug (or antiparkinson or antiparkinsonian) is a type of antitremor drug which is intended to treat and relieve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) or Parkinsonism.

Most of these agents act by either increasing dopamine activity or reducing acetylcholine activity in the central nervous system (CNS).


Experimental models

Oxotremorine produces ataxia, tremor and spasticity, similar to those symptoms seen in Parkinsonism, and has thus become a research tool in experimental studies aimed at determining more effective anti-Parkinsonian drugs.[1]
