Some medicines can increase the side effects associated with Atrovent (ipratropium). Some medical conditions can reduce Atrovent's effectiveness. Before taking Atrovent, tell your doctor if you're taking other inhaled medications or drugs for allergies, irritable bowel disease, ulcers, motion sickness, Parkinson's disease or urinary problems.  Tell your doctor before starting Atrovent if you're taking these specific drugs: scopolamine, atropine, propantheline, belladonna, methscopolamine, clidinium, methantheline, dicyclomine, mepenzolate, glycopyrrolate or hyoscyamine.
