What should I tell my doctor before taking atropine?

Before taking atropine, tell your doctor about any medication allergies you may have, especially to atropine or belladonna. You should always tell your doctor about any other medications that you are taking before starting a new medication. This list should include any nutritional supplements and vitamins.

If you have glaucoma, be sure to tell your doctor or healthcare provider before using atropine. Also, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before taking any medication.
