Main article: Antitremor drugs

An antiparkinsonian drug (or antiparkinson or antiparkinsonian) is a type of antitremor drug which is intended to treat and relieve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) or Parkinsonism.

Most of these agents act by either increasing dopamine activity or reducing acetylcholine activity in the central nervous system (CNS).
