Description

Biperiden is a predominantly centrally acting anti-cholinergic. It has a peripheral effect, which is low in comparison to atropine. Biperiden binds competitively to peripheral and central muscarinic receptors (primarily M1).

Trihexyphenidyl is an anticholinergic agent. It is an antispasmodic drug which exerts a direct inhibitory effect on the parasympathetic nervous system. It diminishes salivation, increases the heart rate, dilates the pupils and reduces spasm of smooth muscle.
