If I am pregnant, is it safe to use glycopyrrolate?

If you're pregnant, 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). There are no controlled studies in pregnant women showing that glycopyrrolate is safe to take during pregnancy. You and your doctor will need to weigh the potential benefits for you of taking the drug against the possible effects on your developing fetus. If you become pregnant while taking glycopyrrolate, call your doctor.
