Is glycopyrrolate-injection safe to take if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?
There are no adequate studies done on glycopyrrolate to determine safe and effective use in pregnant women. It has been shown that small amounts of glycopyrrolate will pass the placental barrier.
It is not known whether glycopyrrolate enters breast milk; therefore, it is best to be cautious before using it in nursing mothers. Anticholinergics may cause suppression of lactation.
