Physostigmine salicylate as an antidote.Int J Clin Pharmacol Ther Toxicol. 1980 Dec; 18(12):523-35.IJ
Most poisonings with anticholinergics deal with simple cases without diagnostic or therapeutic difficulties; however, in difficult or unclarified cases a new method for diagnosis and treatment is the antidote physostigmine salicylate. Within 15 minutes after application of 2 mg of the antidote the central anticholinergic symptoms disappear, such as respiratory depression, coma, cramps and hallucinations as do the peripheral anticholinergic symptoms as cardiac rhythm disturbance, dry mouth and red dry skin. No fatal overdose with anticholinergic drugs occurs if the antidote is given in time.
