Description: Otenzepad, also known as AF-DX 116, is a selective M2 antagonist. Oral AF-DX 116 resulted in greater elevation of DBP than SBP in unstressed rats. In stressed rats, greater and more prolonged elevation of SBP than in unstressed rats was noted, particularly at higher doses. he effects of AF-DX 116 on blood pressure and heart rate thus may arise from peripheral action and AF-DX 116 may be useful for treating hypotension related to autonomic imbalance of the vagotonia type.
