What are possible side effects of Robinul?

Robinul (glycopyrrolate), a prescription medication used to help treat peptic ulcers, can cause a number of side effects. These include:
  • dry mouth or loss of taste
  • decreased sweating, which can raise the risk of heat exhaustion or heatstroke
  • trouble urinating
  • blurred vision or other vision problems
  • headaches
  • feeling drowsy, dizzy, weak, nervous or confused

  • upset stomach or vomiting
  • constipation or feeling bloated
