|RATING||REASON||SIDE EFFECTS FOR GLYCOPYRROLATE||COMMENTS||SEX||AGE||DURATION/|
|4||Hyperhidrosis||Severe dry mouth (I take the 1 mg capsules, usually my dose is 2 but it depends on the temperaute and what I'm doing), sore throat, dry eyes, hard to breathe if I take it at night, and dry hands that swell in the heat if I walk and have them swinging at my sides.||I wasn't sure whether to rate this 3 or 4 and finally decided on four. It's a good medicine if you are able to hydrate yourself (drink fluids) daily so your throat and mouth stay nice and moist and your voice doesn't get all scratchy or crack. I guess it doesn't help that I have bad anxiety issues, so the fact that this messes with my voice brings a lot of negativity my way. Also, I do sweat an awful lot, mostly my back and under my arms (fixed most of that with Botox injections) so I have to take a high dose for it to work the way I want it to.||F||17||2 years ||9/6/2007|
GLYCOPYRROLATE (GLYCOPYRROLATE): Glycopyrrolate is a long term medication used to treat ongoing lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It must be used regularly to reduce and prevent symptoms such as shortness of breath and wheezing. This may lead to a decrease in time lost from work due to COPD. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics. It works by relaxing the muscles around the airways so that they can open wider to make breathing easier. Glycopyrrolate does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden breathing problems. If wheezing or sudden shortness of breath occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.
