Oxotremorine (i.e. oxo M) is a parasympathomimetic drug that acts as a selective muscarinic acetylcholine receptor agonist.[1]

Oxotremorine produces ataxia, tremor and spasticity, similar to those symptoms seen in Parkinsonism, and has thus become a research tool in experimental studies aimed at determining more effective anti-Parkinsonian drugs.[2]

Oxotremorine also produces antipsychotic effects.[3]
