Effects of calcium channel blocking agents on neostigmine-induced fasciculations.

Abstract

Male Sprague-Dawley rats were anesthetized with pentobarbital and prepared for monitoring contractions of the gastrocnemius muscle evoked by stimulation of the sciatic nerve. Animals received atropine prior to a dose of neostigmine of 0.02 mg/kg i.v. The effects on contractile strength and the number of fasciculations in a 2-min period were assessed… (More)
