Neuropharmacology of obstructive sleep apnea and central apnea 29 Physostigmine The cholinesterase inhibitor physostigmine has been investigated in a small blinded, placebo-controlled study of moderate to severe OSA patients, and via steady-state intravenous infusion been shown to modestly decrease the overall AHI and severity of oxygen desaturation, predominantly in REM compared with NREM sleep [81]. The exact mechanism of the beneficial action of physostigmine in sleep apnea is not clear.
