I worked as a pharmacy technician for 10 years prior to hygiene and I saw a lot of end stage hospice patients being placed on Atropine drops for excessive fluid build up in their lungs. I heard it worked well. Never heard of it used for excessive drooling but I’m sure it might help as it reduces fluid production.
