When can I stop taking glycopyrrolate?

You can stop taking glycopyrrolate (Robinul) when you and your doctor decide that it's safe and recommended for you to stop. Glycopyrrolate treats peptic ulcers, including sores in the stomach (gastric ulcers) and the upper part of the small intestine (duodenal ulcers), by reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Although glycopyrrolate may reduce stomach acid within a few hours, it's likely you'll need to take the drug two or three times a day for several weeks so that your ulcer clears up and your stomach or intestines have time to heal.
