GLYCOPYRROLATE - ORAL
COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Robinul
USES: Glycopyrrolate is used with other drugs to treat a certain type of stomach/intestinal ulcer (peptic ulcer). This medication may help relieve stomach/abdominal pain. However, it has not been shown to be effective in healing these ulcers, preventing them from returning, or preventing other problems caused by ulcers. Glycopyrrolate works by decreasing the amount of acid in the stomach. It also slows the natural movements of the gut and relaxes the muscles in the stomach/intestines. Glycopyrrolate belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics.
HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth, usually 2 to 3 times a day or as directed by your doctor.
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. The manufacturer recommends that adults should not take more than 8 milligrams a day of glycopyrrolate.
Do not increase your dose or take this drug more often without your doctor's approval. Your condition will not improve any faster and the risk of serious side effects may increase.
Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
