Is glycopyrrolate contraindicated in narrow angle glaucoma? Why?

Maybe: Glycopyrrolate is an antimuscarinic agent and could make your pupils dilate. If you have an angle prone to acute angle closure, this drug could induce an attack. I am curious why you ask about this drug, as it is not something normally prescribed by any clinic doctor and commonly only used by anesthesiologists during general anesthesia.
