Sympathomimetic drugs mimic the effects of the sympathetic nervous system, increasing heart rate and blood pressure, while anticholinergic drugs block the action of the parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in decreased secretions and relaxation of smooth muscle. Sympathomimetics typically work by stimulating adrenergic receptors, while anticholinergics work by blocking acetylcholine receptors.
