How to use Glycopyrrolate Solution
Read the Patient and Caregiver Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking glycopyrrolate and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually 3 times a day. Take it on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose.
Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. For children, dosage is also based on weight. To reduce the risk of side effects, your doctor may direct you to start this medication at a low dose and gradually increase the dose. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully.
Do not increase the dose or take this drug more often without your doctor's approval. Your condition will not improve any faster and your risk of side effects will increase.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
