Mechanism Of Action Homatropine is a competitive muscarinic receptor antagonist with a bulky aromatic group in place of the acetyl group of acetylcholine. It is expected to act in similar manner as atropine, producing similar parasympatholytic effects. By blocking muscarinic receptors and cholinergic signalling pathways, homatropine blocks the response of the iris sphincter muscle and cause the pupil to become unresponsive to light upon dilation or mydriasis. It also blocks the accommodative muscle of the ciliary body to cholinergic stimulation
Description of the Drug: Homatropine is an anticholinergic agent used to dilate the pupil, treat inflammation of the uveal tract, and suppress a cough.
