Big Image
Generic Name: Atropine Tablets (AT-row-peen)
Brand Name: Atreza and Sal-Tropine

Sal-Tropine is used for:

Treating spasms in the stomach, intestines, and other organs. It may also be used to decrease the production of saliva and secretions of the airway or for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Sal-Tropine is an anticholinergic. It works by blocking the effects of a chemical in the body (acetylcholine) in the nervous system, stomach, intestines, certain glands (eg, salivary gland), urinary tract, and other tissues.

Do NOT use Sal-Tropine if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Sal-Tropine
  • you have adhesions between the iris and lens of the eyes, asthma, blocking of the stomach or bowel, ulcerative colitis, bleeding, angle-closure glaucoma, myasthenia gravis, difficulty urinating due to a blockage, excess acid in the stomach or throat, esophagus problems (difficulty swallowing), or bowel muscle weakness

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
