Atropine is an antimuscarinic receptor blocker that is commonly used to treat bradycardia and ophthalmic conditions. It is also used as an antidote to treat the toxicity of Acetylcholine esterase inhibitors organophosphate and beta blockers.

Atropine can decrease urgency of urine in a person causing urinary retention. It can also help increase the activity of the heart; it causes mydriasis as well constipation in persons taking atropine.
