How Does Procyclidine Work?

Procyclidine is an anticholinergic medication. It works by blocking the effects of acetylcholine, a type of neurotransmitter (a chemical in the nervous system).
 
Normal muscle movement control requires a careful balance of acetylcholine and dopamine (another neurotransmitter). In Parkinson's disease (and with extrapyramidal disorders caused by antipsychotic medications), dopamine levels are decreased, creating an imbalance between dopamine and acetylcholine. By blocking the effects of acetylcholine, procyclidine helps to re-establish a normal balance between dopamine and acetylcholine.
