What is Detrusitol?

Detrusitol is a urinary incontinence medication that is used to treat symptoms of overactive bladder syndrome. If you have overactive bladder syndrome, you may notice that you are unable to control your urine voluntarily, that you feel a sudden and urgent need to urinate without warning. and/or that the number of times you urinate during the day increases. The active substance in Detrusitol is tolterodine. Tolterodine is a drug that belongs to the group of medicines called antimuscarinics.

How does it work?

The main active ingredient in Destrusitol, Tolterodine acts on the M1, M2, M3, M4, and M5 subtypes of muscarinic receptors, while modern antimuscarinic treatments for overreactive bladder only act on M3 receptors, making them more selective.

Tolterodine, although acting on all types of receptors, has few undesirable effects compared to oxybutynin (selective M3 and M1, but more parotid than bladder) as tolterodine targets the bladder more than other parts of the body. This means that less drug administered daily is needed to efficiently impact the bladder and thus give fewer undesirable effects.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Known as an overactive bladder medication, Tolterodine uses include being utilised a medication to treat an overactive bladder. Uses also include the reduced necessity to urinate frequently. It can also help prevent a person from accidentally urinating.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always take Genitourinary treatment medication exactly as your doctor has told you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any doubts regarding the medicine.

The recommended dose is one 2 mg tablet twice a day, except in patients with liver or kidney disease, or bothersome side effects, in which case your doctor may reduce your dose by one 1 mg tablet twice a day. Detrusitol is not recommended for use in children.

Detrusitol is taken orally. The tablets should be swallowed whole.

Treatment duration:

Your doctor will indicate the duration of your Detrusitol treatment. Do not stop the treatment sooner if you do not see an immediate effect since your bladder needs time to adjust to it. Finish the treatment with the tablets prescribed by your doctor. If you do not notice any effect at the time, consult your doctor.

The benefit of the treatment should be reevaluated after 2-3 months of using it. Always check with your doctor if you are planning to stop treatment.

If you take more Detrusitol than you should:

If you or anyone else takes too many tablets, immediately consult your doctor or pharmacist.
