Non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking drugs Non-depolarizing NMBDs have a slower onset than suxamethonium and provide reversible competitive antagonism at the neuromuscular junction with ACh. Blockade starts when 70–80% of receptors at the junction are blocked, and is complete with 90% blockade. They are highly ionized, poorly lipid soluble and protein bound at physiological pH. Muscle function returns as the drug diffuses out into the plasma; none is metabolized within the junction. g. • atracurium: metabolized spontaneously in plasma by Hofmann degradation and causes histamine release; • cisatracurium: an atracurium isomer, causing less histamine release; • mivacurium: short acting and metabolized by plasma cholinesterase.
