Which side effect is LEAST likely to occur following administration of neostigmine?

Study on!!!

2

By increasing the concentration of ----- at the muscarinic receptor, AchE inhibitors cause a predictable set of parasympathetic side effects.

Ach

3

By increasing the concentration of Ach at the muscarinic receptor, AchE inhibitors cause a predictable set of parasympathetic side effects.

Mnemonic:

DUMBBELLS
