Origin: [Homo- + atropine.]
Homatropine is an anticholinergic medication that is an antagonist at muscarinic acetylcholine receptors and thus the parasympathetic nervous system. It is used in eye drops as a cycloplegic, and as a mydriatic. For Homatropine methylbromide see Methylhomatropine, this is a different medication. Homatropine is less potent than atropine and has a shorter duration of action. It is available as the hydrobromide salt. Homatropine is also given as an atropine substitute given to reverse the muscarinic and CNS effects associated with indirect cholinomimetic administration.
