A 7-month-old baby experienced tachycardia and mydriasis after administration of a single dose of trospium 10 mg given by a sibling. The baby's weight was reported as 5 kg. Following admission into the hospital and about 1 hour after ingestion of the trospium, medicinal charcoal was administered for detoxification.

The baby was discharged as completely recovered the following day.
SANCTURA® is contraindicated in patients with:
- urinary retention
- gastric retention
- uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma.
- known hypersensitivity to the drug or its ingredients. Angioedema, rash and anaphylactic reaction have been reported.
