In the group of combined neurotropic drugs affecting the nervous system — Central and peripheral.

To drugs with a primary effect on the Central nervous system include analgesics, anesthetic, antiepileptic and other drugs affecting different neurotransmitter systems of the CNS. Among Central neurotropic funds recovered by drugs that affect the human psyche. To psychotropic drugs include antipsychotics, anxiolytics, antidepressants, etc.

Drugs with a primary effect on the peripheral nervous system are divided into influencing afferent and efferent nervous system. Afferent nervous system includes the end of the sensitive nerves and afferent conductors. Means acting on the afferent part of the peripheral nervous system — local anesthetics, astringent, enveloping, absorbent etc.

The efferent part of the peripheral nervous system comprises nerve conductors, exiting from and the CNS to skeletal muscles (somatic nerves) and internal organs (autonomic nerves). Autonomic innervation, in turn, is subdivided into sympathetic and parasympathetic. The momentum is with the endings of autonomic and somatic nerves is transmitted to the Executive bodies at the synapses via neurotransmitters. Depending on the type of mediator the momentum transfer is defined as the cholinergic, noradrenergic, etc. In accordance with this medicines form groups of cholinergic (cholinomimetics, anticholinergics, etc.) and adrenergic (simpatolitiki, blockers and agonists, etc.) drugs. Of drugs affecting synaptic transmission in the efferent nervous system, are very important in medical practice.
