Can I use glycopyrrolate if I am breastfeeding?

If you're breastfeeding, talk to your doctor about whether you should take glycopyrrolate (Robinul), a drug prescribed to treat peptic ulcers (sores in the stomach or upper part of the small intestine). Doctors don't know for certain whether glycopyrrolate can pass into breast milk and affect a nursing infant. There's a possibility that taking glycopyrrolate may affect your ability to make breast milk. You and your doctor can review your options for treatment and decide what is best for you and your infant.
