    Ach or acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter. Certain agents and medications can limit the activity of an enzyme that normally breaks down acetylcholine or an inadequate amount of the enzyme could cause the same problem. When ach is not broken down, it can build up in the body and cause over stimulation to the patients neuromuscular joints. This condition is also known as cholinergic crisis.
