Brief Answer:
Ipratroprium is an Anticholinergic, drops the BP

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

Ipratropium bromide is actually an Anticholinergic. The Bromide base that forms the stable salt is inactive. So overall, the drug causes a fall in blood pressure.

However at doses which are usually prescribed we don't see any significant change in blood pressure.
