||Description a muscarinic antagonist that has effects in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. it has been used in the treatment of arteriosclerotic, idiopathic, and postencephalitic parkinsonism. it has also been used to alleviate extrapyramidal symptoms induced by phenothiazine derivatives and reserpine.indication:for use as an adjunct in the therapy of all forms of parkinsonism and control of extrapyramidal disorders secondary to neuroleptic drug therapy.mechanism of action parkinsonism is thought to result from an imbalance between the excitatory (cholinergic) and inhibitory (dopaminergic) systems in the corpus striatum. the mechanism of action of centrally active anticholinergic drugs such as biperiden is considered to relate to competitive antagonism of acetylcholine at cholinergic receptors in the corpus striatum, which then restores the balance.
