Propantheline Bromide for Hyperhidrosis?

Is propantheline bromide effective as a treatment for hyperhidrosis? I have palmer, planter and axillary hyperhidrosis and have heard varying reports as to the effectiveness of medication like this.

Propantheline Not Really Specific

    The problem with these anticholinergic side effects, which are frequently worse than the hyperhidrosis.  Botox reduces the hyperhidrosis in a very specific fashion, but the cost is much greater.

Propantheline for hyperhidrosis vs Glycopyrrolate

+1

Propantheline and glycopyrrolate are used to treat hyperhidrosis and their effect is variable but most insurance companies want atients to try to take one of these anticholinergic medications - their effectiveness is less than 1 in 2 patients and they can have side effects of dry eyes/mouth, palpitations of the heart, abdominal cramps, sexual dysfunction in men (rare), among others and you should get the full list from the pharmacist.
