Cholinergic Agent

Bethanechol hydrochloride

Used for selective stimulation of the bladder to produce contraction to initiate micturition and empty the bladder. Found to be most useful in patients who have bladder hypocontractility, provided they have functional and coordinated sphincters. Rarely used due to difficulty in timing effect and because of gastrointestinal stimulation.
