As you can again see, functionally the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions are opposing. Simulating one autonomic division may increase the activity of an organ, and stimulation of the other division may inhibit the activity. Drug activity can disrupt the balance of sympathetic and parasympathetic activity.

-- Bruce J. Colbert, MS, RRT and Barb J. Kennedy, Pharm.D., from Integrated Cardiopulmonary Pharmacology, 2nd ed.
