Glycopyrrolate Injectable is indicated as a pre-anesthetic anticholinergic agent in dogs and cats. In dogs, it reduces salivary, tracheobronchial and pharyngeal secretions, reduces the volume and free acidity of gastric secretion, and blocks cardiac vagal inhibitory reflexes during induction of anesthesia and intubation.
What is Cuvposa?
Glycopyrrolate, a synthetic anticholinergic agent, diminishes the volume and acidity of gastric secretions. It is indicated for the treatment of peptic ulcers as well as chronic drooling associated with neurologic disorders such as cerebral palsy.
Your doctor may prescribe this medication for other therapeutic uses. You can only purchase glycopyrrolate tablets or solutions with a prescription.
How Cuvposa (glycopyrrolate) works
Cuvposa (glycopyrrolate) belongs to a group of medications known as anticholinergics (or antimuscarinics). It blocks a chemical called acetylcholine on your salivary glands, where saliva is made and released into your mouth. Normal amounts of saliva help with swallowing and chewing, but too much saliva can cause drooling. Some conditions affecting the brain, like cerebral palsy, can cause severe drooling, so Cuvposa (glycopyrrolate) helps by lowering the amount of saliva made.
