1. We convert to DA in the brain. One of us blocks the destruction of the other, and we are a first
line drug. I’m used as a dopamine replacement.
2. I directly activate DA receptors, and I’m used as a first line drug supplement or to supplement
levodopa. I’m a dopamine agonist.
3. I inhibit the breakdown of levodopa by COMT, I’m safer than levodopa
4. I inhibit the breakdown of dopamine by MAO-8, I’m used for newly diagnosed patients and for
“off” times during levodopa therapy.
5. I promote the release of DA from remaining DA neurons: I may also block DA reuptake, AND
may help reduce levodopa induced dyskinesia.
6. I block muscarinic ACh receptors in the striatum, and I block PNS ACh receptors. I have many
side effects! Some include dry mouth, constipation, urinary retention, tachycardia, photophobia
and blurred vision. I have a safety alert to NOT use in elderly.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
