Arecoline Hydrobromide Description
Arecoline Hydrobromide is an arecoline salt of hydrobromic acid generally used in removing parasites from the dog’s intestine. It has a strong parasympathomimetic action. Arecoline and other muscarinic receptor agonists have been shown to improve learning and memory and may prove to be useful in treating dementia.
Arecoline hydrobromide is an alkaloid originally extracted from betal nut palm seed.
Arecoline Hydrobromide Applications
Arecoline Hydrobromide has a strong paralytic effect on the tapeworm muscles, and at the same time can enhance the intestinal peristalsis of the host, thus producing a tapeworm repelling effect. It is mainly used to treat taeniasis common in dogs and poultry.
