Glycopyrronium bromide is a synthetic anticholinergic drug indicated for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders like peptic ulcer, to diminish secretions, block cardiac vagal reflexes before surgery and for the long-term treatment of airflow obstruction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Glycopyrronium is available in different formulations, such as tablets, lyophilized injections and capsules for Dry Powder Inhaler (DPI). Administered to the lungs with a DPI device, Glycopyrronium behaves as a long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) and is used for maintenance treatment of patients with COPD.
