💊 Profile

Dexetimide is a tertiary antimuscarinic with actions similar to those of trihexyphenidyl. It has been used to alleviate drug-induced extrapyramidal symptoms, but, like other antimuscarinics, is of no value against tardive dyskinesias. Dexetimide is given as the hydrochloride although doses are expressed in terms of the base; dexetimide hydrochloride 1.1 mg is equivalent to about 1 mg of dexetimide. A usual oral dose is 0.5 to 1 mg once daily; it has also been given by intramuscular injection.
