Cholinesterase Inhibitors: Introduction

  • Cholinesterase inhibitors, also known as acetylcholine inhibitors, are a group of drugs that are used to prevent the routine breakdown of acetylcholine in the body
  • Acetylcholine is one of the key neurotransmitters in the body that is functional in central as well as the peripheral nervous system. Acetylcholine levels have an effect on learning, thinking, memory, and cognitive functions of the body. Low level of acetylcholine in the body adversely affects the memory and cognitive functions, especially in patients with dementia.
  • Cholinesterase inhibitors inactivate the acetylcholine’s neurotransmission activity by preventing it from routine breakdown. This leads to an increase in the levels of acetylcholine in the body.
  • Cholinesterase inhibitors are primarily used in the treatment of dementia caused due to Alzheimer’s disease. These drugs are also prescribed for the treatment of Lewy body dementia, Parkinson’s disease, glaucoma, myasthenia gravis, and schizophrenia.
