How does Artane/Trihexyphenidyl work?

Artane belongs to the group of an anticholinergic antiparkinsonian agent drug, commonly used for the treatment of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, a brain disorder that causes muscle tremor, stiffness, and weakness. Artane/Trihexyphenidyl works by correcting the chemical imbalance that causes Parkinson's disease. Artane/Trihexyphenidyl medicines (also called antimuscarinics) work by preventing the activity of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Neurotransmitters are chemical compounds that are found in the brain and nerves, and act as chemical messengers between the nerve cells. There are various different neurotransmitters in the body, with various different functions. Several diseases and conditions involve either overactivity or underactivity of certain neurotransmitters. In Parkinson's disease there is a deficiency in the brain of a neurotransmitter called dopamine. Normally in the brain there is a balance between the activity of dopamine and the activity of acetylcholine. Artane/Trihexyphenidyl 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. Artane/Trihexyphenidyl is most effective at reducing the tremor and rigidity associated with the disease, but it has little effect on the slow movements (bradykinesia).
