Description

Generic Kemadrin is used to treat parkinsonism and extrapyramidal dysfunction caused by tranquilizer therapy.

In Parkinson's disease, the deficiency of dopamine causes overactivity of acetylcholine. This causes some of the symptoms of the disease. Generic Kemadrin works by blocking the receptors that acetylcholine acts on. This reduces the activity of the acetylcholine and helps restore the balance of acetylcholine and dopamine in the brain. In this way, Generic Kemadrin helps to control some of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Generic name of Generic Kemadrin is Procyclidine.

Brand name of Generic Kemadrin is Kemadrin.

kemadrin drug classification

A simple, sensitive and precise gas-chromatographic method for simultaneous extraction, derivatization and determination of methsuximide, ethosuximide, diphenylhydantoin, carbamazepine, phenobarbital and primidone in the presence of other drugs has been described. The method is especially useful for drug monitoring in patients on multiple anticonvulsant therapy while also on combination therapy with psychotropic drugs. It overcomes the analytical interferences between mephenytoin and phenobarbital; methsuximide and primidone; kemadrin and primidone; cholesterol and primidone; prolixin, haldol and other drugs; encountered in other methods using underivatized, trimethylsilylated or methylated drugs. As little as 0.5 microgram/ml of a drug can be determined and if needed the method can be scaled down to 0.3 ml plasma. The method yielded recoveries of 97-103% with standard deviations of 0.7-1.8. For a constant check of the precision, an internal quality control using daily analysis of a sample from a frozen plasma pool supplemented with known concentrations of the anticonvulsants was used. The method is suitable for use in routine clinical laboratory.

kemadrin alcohol

The effects of eight antiparkinsonian anticholinergic drugs on motor activity in mice were studied. Trihexyphenidyl, biperiden, benztropine, etybenztropine, procyclidine and tropacine clearly stimulated motor activity. Orphenadrine did not change motor activity, and profenamine had sedative properties. The classification of these drugs by order of their effect on this animal model does not agree with the classification proposed by Deniker et al (1980).

kemadrin overdose

In a series of 36 patients with acute schizophrenia flupenthixol dosage was blindly adjusted to give a fixed level of sedation. Patients were than randomly allocated to procyclidine or placebo. The patients receiving procyclidine experienced more positive schizophrenic symptoms and less severe extrapyramidal features by comparison with placebo patients. Blood levels of prolactin and flupenthixol estimated by radioimmunoassay were not significantly changed by the addition of procyclidine. Flupenthixol dosage and levels and prolactin levels were significantly related. There was no significant association between clinical and laboratory measures, with the exception that a curvilinear (inverted U) relationship was demonstrated between flupenthixol levels and antipsychotic and extrapyramidal effects. This relationship may be due to the fact that, in a study of this design, patients resistant to the effects of neuroleptic medication are likely to be given the highest doses. The findings support earlier claims that anticholinergic medication has adverse effects on schizophrenic symptoms.

All autopsy samples received at the National Institute of Forensic Toxicology during the years 1986-1996 which contained anticholinergic antiparkinsonian drugs were reviewed. Of a total of 69 cases, orphenadrine was present in 57 (83%), biperiden in 8 (12%), procyclidine in 3 (4%), and trihexyphenidyl/benzhexol in 1 (1%) of the subjects. The measured concentrations were assessed in light of previously published data. Of 21 cases where causality between drug ingestion and death was classified as either highly probable (18/21) or possible (3/21), all subjects tested positive for orphenadrine. In the autopsy samples from these patients, orphenadrine concentrations in the 4.5-600 mumol/l range (mean 62.5 mumol/l, SD 126.5 mumol/l) were determined. Because of a low national autopsy rate, there is reason to believe that the actual numbers of drug-related deaths in this period may have been significantly higher. It is concluded that orphenadrine is responsible for a disproportionally high number of overdose deaths.

This study assessed misuse of anticholinergic drugs in a population of 50 patients with serious mental illness who were assertively managed by a community-based outreach team in Sydney, Australia. One-third of the subjects reported having misused anticholinergics over the previous month. All anticholinergics were misused, and trihexyphenidyl (benzhexol) was misused most frequently. Most subjects misused at least one other drug as well. On direct questioning, the reason given most frequently was "to get high"; on indirect questioning, reasons were related more to peer participation and feelings of futility. Marginalized patients living in the community are vulnerable to the misuse of anticholinergic drugs.

kemadrin drug side effects

We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical questions: What are the effects of drug treatments, surgical treatments, and physical treatments for focal and generalised dystonia? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and other important databases up to September 2013 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically; please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review). We included harms alerts from relevant organisations such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The tolerance of five central muscarinic receptor antagonists has been studied in experimental animals. According to the effect on orientation-exploratory reaction, drugs were arranged in the following order of increasing toxicity: procyclidine < trihexiphenidyl < benactizine < atropine < scopolamine. For the same therapeutic index, trihexiphenidyl and benactizine were characterized by the maximum tolerance (TD50/ED50 > 10) in mice. Scopolamine and atropine exhibited anticonvulsant activity at doses exceeding the threshold values by a factor of 6.3 and 3.9, respectively. For procyclidine, the average anticonvulsant dose was threefold lower than the threshold value. Benactizine and procyclidine had maximum tolerance levels in rats. The TD50/ED50 ratio for these drugs was greater than 3 (against 0.5 - 0.7 in groups treated with trihexiphenidyl, atropine and scopolamine).

Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors in combination with an anticholinergic, particularly anticholinergics with antiglutamatergic properties, can effectively protect against nerve agent-induced seizures and lethality. The objective of the present study was to examine potential behavioral side effects of the anticholinesterases physostigmine (0.1mg/kg), galantamine (3mg/kg), huperzine (0.5mg/kg), and donepezil (2.5mg/kg) alone or each drug in combination with anticholinergic procyclidine (3mg/kg). The results showed that rats injected intraperitoneally with galantamine displayed a mild cognitive deficit in terms of reduced preference for novelty that was similarly found among animals treated with procyclidine combined with either galantamine or donepezil. Locomotor activity and rearing were radically depressed in all groups treated with anticholinesterases as well as in combination with procyclidine. Reductions in activity were most prominent for rats injected with galantamine alone. Equalizing effects of cholinesterase inhibitors and anticholinergics were absent in the present context. Findings from previous studies that both systemic and local (amygdala) application of physostigmine cause increased fear-motivated freezing response in rats, may explain the marked reductions in activity among the present rats. In view of these findings, use of anticholinesterases (crossing the blood-brain barrier) as prophylactics against nerve agents must be carefully examined to avoid severe side effects.

There is a great body of evidence, that excitatory amino acid antagonists, apart from their anticonvulsive properties per se, potentiate the protective activity of conventional antiepileptics against maximal electroshock-induced seizures in mice. It is worth stressing, that combinations of valproate with either CGP 37849 (a competitive NMDA antagonist) or dizocilpine (MK-801, a non-competitive NMDA antagonist), providing a 50% protection against maximal electroshock, resulted in no adverse effects, as measured in the chimney test (motor coordination) or passive avoidance task (long-term memory). On the other hand, valproate administered alone at its ED50, to protect against maximal electroshock, produced profound adverse effects. However, some NMDA antagonists (D-CPP-ene, memantine, procyclidine or trihexyphenidyl) did enhance the protection offered by common antiepileptics but these combined treatments were associated with considerable side-effects on motor coordination and long-term memory. Interestingly, ifenprodil (an antagonist of the polyamine site within the NMDA receptor complex) possessed some anticonvulsive activity against electroconvulsions but failed to enhance the antielectroshock efficacy of conventional antiepileptics. AMPA/KA receptor antagonists (NBQX and GYKI 52466), similarly to NMDA antagonists, potentiated the protective action of antiepileptic drugs against maximal electroshock and these combinations were generally devoid of unwanted effects.

A group of antiparkinson drugs (benactyzine, biperiden, caramiphen, procyclidine, and trihexyphenidyl) has been shown to possess both anticholinergic and antiglutamatergic properties, making these agents very well suited as anticonvulsants against nerve agents. The first purpose of this study was to make a comparative assessment of the anticonvulsant potencies of the antiparkinson agents when microinfused (1 microl) into the seizure controlling area tempestas (AT) of rats 20 min before subcutaneous injection of soman (100 microg/kg). The second purpose was to determine whether cholinergic and/or glutamatergic antagonism was the effective property. The results showed that only procyclidine (6 microg) and caramiphen (10 microg) antagonized soman-induced seizures. Cholinergic, and not glutamatergic, antagonism was likely the active property, since atropine (100 microg), and scopolamine (1 microg) caused anticonvulsant effects, whereas MK-801 (1 microg), and ketamine (50 microg) did not. Soman (11 nmol) injected into AT resulted more frequently in clonic convulsions than full tonic-clonic convulsions. AT may serve as both a trigger site for soman-evoked seizures and a site for screening anticonvulsant potencies of future countermeasures.

Results from studies based on microinfusions into seizure controlling brain sites (area tempestas, medial septum, perirhinal cortex, posterior piriform cortex) have shown that procyclidine, muscimol, caramiphen, and NBQX, but not ketamine, exert anticonvulsant effects against soman-induced seizures. The purpose of the present study was to examine whether levetiracetam (Keppra(®)) may enhance the anticonvulsant potency of the above drugs to become optimally effective when used systemically. Levetiracetam has a unique profile in preclinical models of epilepsy and has been shown to increase the potency of other antiepileptic drugs. The rats were pretreated with pyridostigmine (0.1mg/kg) to enhance survival and received anticonvulsants 20 min after onset of seizures evoked by soman (1.15 × LD(50)). The results showed that no single drug was able to terminate seizure activity. However, when levetiracetam (LEV; 50mg/kg) was combined with either procyclidine (PCD; 10mg/kg) or caramiphen (CMP; 10mg/kg) complete cessation of seizures was achieved, but the nicotinic antagonist mecamylamine was needed to induce full motor rest in some rats. In a subsequent experiment, rats were pretreated with HI-6 (125 mg/kg) to enhance survival and treatment started 40 min following seizure onset of a soman dose of 1.6 × LD(50). LEV (50mg/kg) combined with either PCD (20mg/kg) or CMP (20mg/kg) terminated seizure activity, but the survival rate was considerably higher for LEV+PCD than LEV+CMP. Both therapies could also save the lives of rats that were about to die 5-10 min after seizure onset. Thus, the combination of LEV and PCD or CMP may make up a model of a future autoinjector being effective regardless of the time of application.

A 51-year-old gentleman was admitted with a history of severe depression with marked agitation in the background of cocaine abuse. He had multiple medical problems like deep vein thrombosis, hepatitis C and tardive dyskinesia. Besides him being on antidepressant medication, risperidone was prescribed by his previous physician for a period of 2 years. Since commencement on this medication, he developed tardive dyskinesia that was never recognised and managed. This side effect caused additional anxiety to the patient and affected his social life. Upon admission, his medications were reviewed, risperidone was gradually withdrawn and procyclidine 2 mg twice daily was added. After being discharged from hospital, he was regularly seen in the out patient clinic. Within 3 months, his tardive dyskinesia improved tremendously, his quality of social life got better and by virtue of this, there was a faster remission in his depression and anxiety symptoms.

The effects of clinically available drugs targeting muscarinic cholinergic, adrenergic, dopaminergic, and serotonergic receptors; intracellular calcium levels and/or the function of calcium-dependent biochemical pathways; ion channels; and cellular pumps were tested against a keratitis isolate of Acanthamoeba castellanii belonging to the T4 genotype. In vitro growth inhibition (amoebistatic) assays were performed by incubating A. castellanii with various concentrations of drugs in the growth medium for 48 h at 30°C. To determine amoebicidal effects, amoebae were incubated with drugs in phosphate-buffered saline for 24 h, and viability was determined using trypan blue exclusion staining. For controls, amoebae were incubated with the solvent alone. Of the eight drugs tested, amlodipine, prochlorperazine, and loperamide showed potent amoebicidal effects, as no viable trophozoites were observed (>95% kill rate), while amiodarone, procyclidine, digoxin, and apomorphine exhibited up to 50% amoebicidal effects. In contrast, haloperidol did not affect viability, but all the drugs tested inhibited A. castellanii growth. Importantly, amlodipine, prochlorperazine, and loperamide showed compelling cysticidal effects. The cysticidal effects were irreversible, as cysts treated with the aforementioned drugs did not reemerge as viable amoebae upon inoculation in the growth medium. Except for apomorphine and haloperidol, all the tested drugs blocked trophozoite differentiation into cysts in encystation assays. Given the limited availability of effective drugs to treat amoebal infections, the clinically available drugs tested in this study represent potential agents for managing keratitis and granulomatous amoebic encephalitis caused by Acanthamoeba spp. and possibly against other meningoencephalitis-causing amoebae, such as Balamuthia mandrillaris and Naegleria fowleri.

A case of procyclidine abuse is described in which the clinical presentation was indistinguishable from mania. The patient was a long-standing poly-drug abuser and was obtaining the drugs from medical sources. Controlled exposure on the ward to drugs of abuse, including a double-blind comparison with placebo, confirmed that procyclidine caused a manic response in this Prednisone Quick Pack Dosage patient.

Nasal absorption of procyclidine, a synthetic anticholinergic compound, was investigated in Wistar rats and Beagle dogs. The dosing Casodex Generic Bicalutamide solution was prepared by dissolving 14C-procyclidine in 50% ethanolic saline. The dosing solution was administered intravenously and intranasally to rats at a dose of 0.6 mg/kg (i.e., 60 microl/kg in the form of a 1% w/v solution), and intravenously, orally and intranasally to dogs at a dose of 0.3 mg/kg (i.e., 6 microl/kg in the form of a 5% w/v solution). Blood samples were taken from an artery of the animals through the catheter for periods of 1200 (for rats) and 1,440 min (for dogs), and the radioactivity in the samples was determined by liquid scintillation counting. The nasal bioavailability of procyclidine in rats and dogs, based on the radioactivity, was calculated to be 81.1 and 98.6%, respectively. In both rats and dogs, the plasma profiles of procyclidine following nasal administration were very close to those following intravenous administration, leading to nearly superimposable profiles between the two protocols. In dogs, nasal administration resulted in significantly higher plasma concentrations during the first 30 min period compared to oral administration, suggesting the superiority of the nasal route over the oral route in terms of a prompt expression of the pharmacological effect of the drug. The results obtained in this study indicate that procyclidine is rapidly and nearly completely absorbed via the nasal route. In conclusion, nasal administration represents a viable alternative to intravenous administration in the case of procyclidine.

Identification of critical Cipro 1000 Mg Side Effects receptors in seizure controlling brain regions may facilitate the development of more efficacious pharmacological therapies against nerve agent intoxication. In the present study, a number of drugs with anticonvulsant potency were microinfused into the perirhinal cortex (PRC) or posterior piriform cortex (PPC) in rats. The drugs used exert cholinergic antagonism (scopolamine), glutamatergic antagonism (ketamine, NBQX), both cholinergic and glutamatergic antagonism (procyclidine, caramiphen), or GABAergic agonism (muscimol). The results showed that in the PRC anticonvulsant efficacy against soman-induced seizures (subcutaneously administered) was achieved by procyclidine or NBQX, but not by ketamine, scopolamine, caramiphen, or muscimol (Experiment 1). Hence, both muscarinic and glutamatergic NMDA receptors had to be antagonized simultaneously or AMPA receptors alone, suggesting increased glutamatergic activation in the PRC before onset of seizures. In the PPC, anticonvulsant effects were assured by scopolamine or muscimol, but not by procyclidine, caramiphen, NBQX, or ketamine (Experiment 2). Thus, muscarinic and GABA(A) receptors appear to be the critical ones in the PPC. Microinfusion of soman into the PRC or PPC resulted in sustained seizure activity in the majority of the rats of both infusion categories. The rhinal structures encompassed in this study apparently have critical functions as both control and trigger sites for nerve agent-evoked seizures.

The binding of hexahydrosiladifenidol, procyclidine, 4-DAMP (4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine) and AF-DX 116 to muscarinic receptors in the heart, ileum, urinary bladder, parotid gland and cerebral cortex from guinea pig was studied in competition experiments with (-)-[3H]QNB. The affinity of AF-DX 116 was higher in Carvedilol Coreg Drug Class the heart than in the cortex and it was extremely low in the parotid gland. The affinities of hexahydrosiladefinidol, procyclidine and 4-DAMP were higher in the cortex and parotid gland than in the heart, bladder and ileum. Hexahydrosiladifenidol and 4-DAMP recognized two classes of muscarinic binding sites in the cortex. However, in contrast to functional data, binding results showed that 4-DAMP hexahydrosiladifenidol and procyclidine did not distinguish between the sites in the smooth muscles and those in the heart. Nevertheless, the present data support the view that the putative M2-receptors are heterogeneous, since the four drugs examined were found to distinguish between the muscarinic binding sites in the parotid gland and those in smooth muscles and heart.

A patient underwent an emergency Caesarean section under general anaesthesia for an antepartum haemorrhage. Following delivery of a live infant, cyclizine was administered in accordance with departmental anti-emetic protocol. On awakening she was confused, slow to Lopid Usual Dosage articulate and had slurred speech. A computed tomography (CT) scan, which was performed to exclude an intracranial event, was normal. Her symptoms were suggestive of a lingual-facial-buccal dyskinesia as seen with dopamine antagonists. A presumptive diagnosis of a dystonic reaction to cyclizine was made. She received two doses of procyclidine before her symptoms completely resolved. Cyclizine has had a resurgence in popularity owing to the recent withdrawal of droperidol and anaesthetists should be aware that, although extremely rare, dystonic reactions may occur with this agent.

Seven antimuscarinic compounds, used mostly for the treatment of extrapyramidal problems, were tested in vitro in radioligand binding assays for evidence of selectivity for two different pharmacological subtypes of the human muscarinic receptor, M1, a predominant form in brain, and M2 Mysoline 150 Mg , a predominant form in heart. Although biperiden, scopolamine, procyclidine, and benztropine showed significant selectivity in the in vitro assays, it is likely that in clinical practice biperiden would be the drug of choice to avoid any antimuscarinic effects on the heart.

The nature of the antagonism by anticholinergic compounds of nicotine-induced convulsion in mice has not been defined clearly. Although, because they do not compete effectively for agonist binding to brain tissue in-vitro, these compounds are thought to be non-competitive antagonists in the brain, pharmacological evidence is lacking. This study describes the anti-nicotinic properties of the clinically used anticholinergic antiparkinson drugs, benztropine, biperiden, caramiphen, ethopropazine, procyclidine and trihexyphenidyl. Nicotine-induced convulsion and arecoline-induced tremor in mice were effectively prevented by these drugs. The concentrations of benztropine, biperiden, caramiphen, ethopropazine, procyclidine and trihexyphenidyl affording 50% prevention of nicotine-induced convulsion (ED50 values) were 7.4, 4.6, 7.8, 4.9, 3.1 and 3.3 mg kg(-1), respectively. The classical muscarinic receptor antagonist atropine had potent anti-muscarinic effects but very weak anti-nicotinic activity. The classical nicotinic receptor antagonist mecamylamine had potent anti-nicotinic activity but no anti-muscarinic effects. The pattern of shift of the dose-response curve for nicotine-induced convulsion in mice was determined in the presence of increasing concentrations of the anticholinergic antiparkinson drugs. These drugs were found to increase the ED50 (0.49 mg Benicar Hct Max Dose kg(-1)) of nicotine-induced convulsion in a dose-related manner. The maximum effect of nicotine and the slope of nicotine dose-response curve were not significantly influenced by either low or high doses of benztropine, procyclidine or trihexylphenidyl, which suggests competitive action. Biperiden, caramiphen and ethopropazine, at low doses which significantly increased the ED50 of nicotine, did not affect the maximum effect of nicotine or the slope of the nicotine dose-response curve; at higher doses, however, they reduced the maximum effect and the slope, which suggests that these drugs have both competitive and non-competitive properties in antagonizing nicotine-induced convulsion in mice. The experiments demonstrate that the anticholinergic antiparkinson drugs and mecamylamine effectively antagonize nicotine-induced convulsion, but atropine does not; some of these drugs have competitive properties whereas others seem to have both competitive and non-competitive properties in antagonizing nicotine-induced convulsion in mice.

Major metabolic pathways are ketone formation on carbon-4 and monohydroxylation in cis-4, trans-4 and (1R*, 3R*, 7S* (or R*))-trans-3 positions of the cyclohexyl ring. 3. Minor pathways consist of monohydroxylation in (1R*, 3S*, 7R*)- and (1R*, 3S*, 7S*)-cis-3 and vicinal diol formation in (1R*, 3R*, 4S*, 7R* (or S*))-cis-3, cis-4 and (1R*, 3S*, 4R*, 7S* (or R*))-trans-3, trans-4 positions of the cyclohexyl part of the molecule. 4. After phenobarbital treatment monohydroxylation in cis-4, trans-4 and trans-3 and vicinal diol formation in trans-3, trans-4 positions are significantly increased and the cis-4 to trans-3 ratio is reversed. 5. The hypothesis is made that the monohydroxylations in cis-3 and trans-3 represent an intermediate step in the formation of the dihydroxycyclohexyl metabolites Microzide Dose , since this pathway is not observed in vivo. The hypothesis is supported by incubation experiments of synthetic monohydroxycyclohexyl derivates of procyclidine with isolated rat hepatocytes.

Prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the startle response refers to a reduction in response to a strong stimulus (pulse) if this is preceded shortly by a weak non-startling stimulus (prepulse). Consistent with theories of deficiencies in early stages of information processing, PPI is found to be reduced in patients with schizophrenia. Atypical antipsychotics are found to be more effective than typical antipsychotics in improving PPI in this population. Anticholinergic drugs are often used to control extrapyramidal symptoms induced by antipsychotic medication, especially by typical antipsychotics, in schizophrenic patients and are known to disrupt cognitive functions in both normal and schizophrenic populations. The effect of anticholinergics on PPI in schizophrenia has not yet been examined. This study determined the effects of procyclidine, an anticholinergic drug, on PPI in patients with schizophrenia given risperidone or quetiapine and not on any anticholinergic drugs, employing a placebo-controlled, cross-over design. Under double-blind conditions, subjects were administered oral 15 mg procyclidine and placebo on separate occasions, 2 weeks apart, and tested for acoustic PPI (prepulse 8 dB and 15 dB above the background and delivered with 30-ms, 60-ms and 120-ms prepulse-to-pulse intervals). Procyclidine significantly impaired PPI compared to placebo (assessed as percentage reduction) with 60-ms prepulse-to-pulse trials and increased the latencies to response peak across all trials. The use of anticholinergics Diovan Blood Pressure Pills needs to be carefully controlled/examined in investigations of information processing deficits using a PPI model and reduced to the minimum level in clinical care of schizophrenia.
