Is glycopyrrolate likely to work better than domperidone for reflux ?

In brief: 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.
