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
  • trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • upset stomach or vomiting
  • constipation or feeling bloated

If any of these symptoms are severe or persist, tell your doctors.

Difficulty breathing or swallowing, and developing a rash or hives, are less common but more serious side effects of Robinul. They may indicate an allergic reaction to Robinul. Contact your doctor immediately if you have any of these symptoms.
