FDA Approves Drug for Chronic Drooling in Children

No, this isn't for your typical infant who drools everywhere.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Cuvposa (glycopyrrolate) Oral Solution to treat chronic severe drooling caused by neurologic disorders in children ages 3 years to 16 years.

Drooling is normal in infants. But a significant proportion of the developmentally disabled population experiences drooling caused primarily by neuromuscular dysfunction that makes it hard to swallow. Cuvposa reduces drooling by lowering the volume of saliva produced.

Cuvposa (glycopyrrolate) Oral Solution is marketed by Shionogi Pharma Inc. of Osaka, Japan.
