Glycopyrrolate Contraindicated Glaucoma
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Open angles are okay: Glycopyrrolate is an anticholinergic, which has a potential effect on patients with NARROW angle glaucoma. The effects can transiently dilate the pupil, which in turn can congest the angle where the natural drainage system is. This effect can be too much in a narrow angle eye where the angle is already compromised. This can lead to acutely increased eye pressures and worsen glaucoma. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you take robinul if you have glaucoma or are glaucoma suspect? I was reading that if you have glaucoma you shouldn't take it. Why is that?
No: Glycopyrrolate is an antispasmodic/muscle relaxant. This should theoretically make reflux worse by relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter and allowing stomach contents to reflux back up into the esophagus. Domperidone is a pro kinetic and should clear the stomach of its contents quicker. ...Read more
I am taking domperidone and omeprazole for reflux ? But i think I have non-acidic reflux as i'm still getting symptoms, would glycopyrrolate help ?
Is glycopyrrolate likely to work better than domperidone for non-acid reflux (lpr) as glycopyrrolate reduces saliva ? Or can you take them together ?
Different: Both medicined are used for different reasons. Glycopyrrolate is used to dry out excessive secretion from lung and saliva. It has many side effects and therefore, should be used with caution. Domperidone is a "prokinetic" drug used to treat gerd or gastroparesis. Hope it answer your question. ...Read more
I've heard i can take glycopyrrolate to help reduce pepsin for non acidic reflux but do I have to be careful taking with omeprazole and domeridone ?
I don't advise it: If you are taking domperidone for gastroparesis, Glycopyrrolate is likely to make it worse. It slows down bowel function and causes constipation and bloating. It has major anticholinergic side effects which you can review at www.Drugs.Com these side effects slow down intestinal function and gastric function. ...Read more
