About LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML

LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML belongs to the group of medications called 'anticholinergics' indicated in anaesthesia for reduction of airway or gastric secretions, volume and acidity of gastric secretions, and blockade of cardiac inhibitory reflexes during induction of anaesthesia and intubation, for protection against peripheral muscarinic effects of cholinergic agents, and intraoperatively to counteract surgically or drug-induced or vagal reflex associated arrhythmias. It is also used as adjunctive therapy for treating peptic ulcers. 

LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML contains 'Glycopyrrolate', which works by inhibiting the action of acetylcholine. Thus, reduces gastric secretions' volume and free acidity and controls excessive pharyngeal, bronchial, and tracheal secretions.

LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML will be administered by a healthcare professional; do not self-administer. In some cases, LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML may cause dry mouth, urinary retention and hesitancy, blurred vision, palpitations, and decreased sweating. Most of these side effects of LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Inform your doctor if you are allergic to any components in LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. LICOLATE INJECTION 1ML may cause drowsiness and blurred vision, do not drive or operate machinery unless you are alert. Let your doctor know if you are taking prescription and non-prescription medications, including vitamins and herbal supplements.
