Roles Classification
Application(s): local anaesthetic
Any member of a group of drugs that reversibly inhibit the propagation of signals along nerves. Wide variations in potency, stability, toxicity, water-solubility and duration of action determine the route used for administration, e.g. topical, intravenous, epidural or spinal block.
peripheral nervous system drug
A drug that acts principally at one or more sites within the peripheral neuroeffector systems, the autonomic system, and motor nerve-skeletal system.
central nervous system depressant
A loosely defined group of drugs that tend to reduce the activity of the central nervous system.
