It binds to the postsynaptic ACh receptor, causing depolarization. In order for the ionophore to be reset for a further depolarization, ACh is metabolized in the cleft by acetylcholinesterase. However, suxamethonium is not metabolized by acetylcholinesterase and so produces initial fasciculation followed by a block, as no further action potential can be propagated whilst the suxamethonium is still bound to the receptor. It is subsequently metabolized by plasma cholinesterase. It has the fastest onset (60 s) and shortest duration (approximately 10 min) of all NMBDs.
