Glycopyrrolate should be used with caution with potassium chloride because concomitant use can decrease bowel movement and can cause irritation or lesions in the stomach and intestine.
PREGNANCY: 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.
NURSING MOTHERS: 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.
