Drug Mode of Action ::
Pyridostigmine bromide is a potent reversible inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for destroying acetylcholine. Inhibiting the enzyme allows free transmission of nerve impulses across the neuromuscular junction. Pyridostigmine bromide has a carbonyl ester linkage that is hydrolysed by acetylcholinesterase but much more slowly than is acetylcholine itself.
