Default New ideas to help with drooling

I have reviewed on the blogs about different things people take for drooling, and I have asked about this before and appreciate everyone's response. My mom goes to the doctor this week so I wanted to see if there is any new medicine that someone maybe taking to help with this so I could check with the doctor when she goes. She currently takes the ampitriptyline, but it does not seem to work very good. Some days she runs like a faucet she says. They had her on the robinul but that gave her acid reflux real bad.

I did read where someone was using the atropine drops and a drug called Pamine. Can anyone offer any feedback on this?

Thank you and God Bless,

Nancy

Glycopyrrolate in a 2mg/5ml solution works well for me. I take 5ml three times per day and I really notice if I forget, I leak like a tap.
