Default Topical glycopyrrolate?

Has anyone had any success using the topical form of glycopyrrolate as opposed to the pill? I am considering going to the doctor soon to try and get a prescription and if the topical version works for palmar hyperhidrosis I would think it would be safer than the pill form...

i believe people have had some success with the secure wipes in addition to glyco. Not too sure about using them on their own.

I first heard about the wipes from someone who had severe underarm HH. They worked fine on my forehead and neck, but obviously not possible to apply to scalp (at least if you have much hair).
So--they'd be worth a try on palms. I do take the meds, but only after I knew the topical stuff wasn't right for my problem.

Good luck!

The wipes had very little if any effect on my hands.

Hi, I use the topical wipes, Secure Wipes from 2.5 mg strength.
I use them on my face, neck and on my shoulder length hair by parting it and getting it right on the scalp, about 1/2" apart.
It works really well on my scalp; well, most of the time, on my face and strangely my hands, which drip, are bone dry.
I also get the headaches, dry mouth and facial flushing. Lately I've been using Med e Tate, another wipe, at night and supplementing with the avert wipes.
The pills are hard for me because I have to eat frequently and the wipes bypass that aspect. This condition is so different for everyone that you just have to keep trying different things until you hit on the right formula for you. Good luck
