Roles Classification
Application(s): muscle relaxant
A drug used to produce muscle relaxation (excepting neuromuscular blocking agents). Its primary clinical and therapeutic use is the treatment of muscle spasm and immobility associated with strains, sprains, and injuries of the back and, to a lesser degree, injuries to the neck. Also used for the treatment of a variety of clinical conditions that have in common only the presence of skeletal muscle hyperactivity, for example, the muscle spasms that can occur in multiple sclerosis.

General Comment
2011-02-04 Succinylcholine chloride is a depolarising neuromuscular blocker used to produce muscle relaxation. Following intravenous injection, it acts in about 30 seconds, with a duration of action averaging 3 to 5 minutes. Following intramuscular injection, it acts in 2 to 3 minutes, and has a duration of action of about 10 to 30 minutes. Both anhydrous succinylcholine chloride and the dihydrate form are used in procedures requiring rapid onset and brief duration of muscle relaxation, such as endoscopies and intubation.
