Homatropine

What is Homatropine?

Homatropine (Equipin, Isopto Homatropine) is an anticholinergic medication that is an antagonist at muscarinic acetylcholine receptors and thus the parasympathetic nervous system. It is used in eye drops as a cycloplegic (to temporarily paralyze accommodation), and as a mydriatic (to dilate the pupil). For Homatropine methylbromide see Methylhomatropine, this is a different medication. Homatropine is less potent than atropine and has a shorter duration of action. It is available as the hydrobromide salt.
