Against indications

- Particular sensitivity to anticholinergics.
- Risk of glaucoma by closing the angle.
- Risk of urinary retention related to urethroprostatic disorders.
- Decompensated heart disease.
- Child under 15 years old.
- Pregnancy: animal data are insufficient to conclude. During the first trimester of pregnancy, the clinical data for biperiden, to date, although limited, do not go in the direction of an increase in malformation risk. In the newborn, treatment with biperiden in late pregnancy may be responsible for effects related to its atropine properties (tachycardia, hyperexcitability, urinary retention, delay in the emission of meconium). Given these data, it is best to avoid using biperidene during pregnancy, whatever the term.
- Breast-feeding: This drug is not recommended for women who are breastfeeding, because of a decrease in milk secretion and the risk of anticholinergic effects in infants (tachycardia, constipation, thickening of bronchial secretions).
