A study was undertaken to assess the efficacy of an oral anticholinergic drug, glycopyrrolate, in the management of drooling in children and young adults with disabilities.
Topical glycopyrrolate should not be overlooked in treatment of focal hyperhidrosis
TLDR
Topical glycopyrrolate is indicated mainly for the head and neck and various types of gustatory sweating and is effective and well tolerated, and the cost to date has been very high, at £250 for 100 2-mg tablets, making it difficult to fund for many patients.
Preliminary study of glycopyrrolate in the management of drooling.
TLDR
In this preliminary study, glycopyrrolate was found to be an effective and well-tolerated addition to the management of drooling in children with disabilities.
Treatment of compensatory gustatory hyperhidrosis with topical glycopyrrolate.
TLDR
The topical application of a glycopyrrolate pad appeared to be safe, efficacious, well tolerated, and a convenient method of treatment for moderate to severe symptoms of gustatory hyperhidrosis in post transthoracic endoscopic sympathectomy or sympathicotomy patients, with few side effects.
Glycopyrrolate treatment of chronic drooling.
TLDR
Glycopyrrolate therapy safely and effectively decreased but rarely abolished drooling in patients with cerebral palsy and related neurodevelopmental disabilities.
Iontophoresis with glycopyrrolate for the treatment of palmoplantar hyperhidrosis
TLDR
It is concluded that glycopyrrolate iontophoresis is more effective than tap water iontphoresis in the treatment of palmoplantar hyperhidrosis and that glyCopyrrolates iontrophoresis has both local and systemic effects on perspiration.

TLDR
It would appear that in some patients with SCI who are subject to incidental episodes of profuse sweating, oral propantheline may offer some relief and may, in fact, be well tolerated, as in the cases described.
Diseases of Eccrine Sweat Glands
The eccrine sweat glands are independent epidermal adnexal glands, since there is no relationship to the hair-sebaceous gland unit, in contrast to the apocrine sweat glands. They are distributed over
GUSTATORY HYPERRTBROSIS. A Complication of Thyroidectomy.
TLDR
Although selected at random, one patient (Case 18) had a smaller left pupil, and in eighteen the gland was removed for thyrotoxicosis and in oue for a uon-toxic goitre, none had gustatory hyperhidrosis or any other disturhance of facial sweating.
