Don’t Jump to Dartisla ODT for Peptic Ulcers
Dartisla ODT will be the first orally disintegrating glycopyrrolate tab to treat peptic ulcer symptoms.
It’s the same glycopyrrolate that’s been available as an add-on for peptic ulcers since the 1960s...when it was used to reduce gastric secretions. But that was before PPIs, H2-blockers, etc.Dartisla ODT 1.7 mg costs about $500/90 tabs...versus about $60 for 90 generic glycopyrrolate 2 mg tabs. And it has the same anticholinergic side effects (dry mouth, etc).
