Sammywalker2009 Posted November 23, 2012 Report Share Posted November 23, 2012 An acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (often abbreviated AChEI) or anti-cholinesterase is a chemical that inhibits the acetylcholinesterase enzymefrom breaking down acetylcholine, thereby increasing both the level and duration of action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Reversible, quasi-irreversible (or pseudirreversible in some sources) and irreversible inhibitors exist. For brainstem /cholinergic syndrome hallucinations that are distressing, multi-modality or with persistent delusions (or visual pathway syndrome hallucinations that are persistent and distressing) largely anecdotal treatment options include cholinesterase inhibitors, anti-convulsants and atypical antipsychotics17,18. Which class of medication to use will depend on the clinical context, with cholinesterase inhibitors a logical first choice for patients with cognitive impairments. any of the smart guys here understand this more than me lol ?
