Bethanechol is a muscarinic cholinergic agonist - so it acts in opposition to certain drug effects, namely the *anti*cholinergic ones. The prototypical anticholinergic drugs are atropine and scopolamine, which can be found in deadly nightshade (Belladonna).

The major anticholinergic symptoms are dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision, urinary retention, cognitive impairment, and rapid heartbeat.

Antipsychotics, tricyclic antidepressants, some antihistamines (Benadryl, Atarax), and some of the drugs used to treat Parkinsonism (Cogentin, Artane) are some classes of drugs that have prominent anticholinergic effects.
