Side Effects of Procyclidine

Common Procyclidine Side Effects

For many medications (especially new medications), the prescribing information carefully details the exact percentage of side effects that were seen in clinical trials. However, the prescribing information for almost all older medications (such as procyclidine) includes only vague side effect information, with no percentages provided. Therefore, it can be difficult to know how common (or how rare) the side effects of such medications may be.
However, based on general experience with the drug, the following are usually considered common procyclidine side effects:
  • Blurred vision (often caused by dry eyes)
  • Difficulty passing urine
  • Constipation
  • Dry mouth
  • Nausea, vomiting, indigestion, or heartburn
  • Dilated (wide open) pupils.

Final Thoughts on Side Effects of Procyclidine

You may experience some or none of the procyclidine side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never taken. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug, or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of procyclidine, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
