So about two days ago i started taking detrol la for my bladder. The first day it worked fine, the urges went down a lot and i had no problem peeing. The second though was different. The second day when i knew i had a full bladder if i tried peeing i got really tense and it took too much effort to try to get myself to pee. Today i woke up this morning and oddly have no trouble and i don't know if it's cause the medicine wore off or if it's because my bladder is use to it now. (i've been taking it as directed) Please help me figure this out, I'm 16 and i'm a guy btw. Answered by Elenora Risatti 6 months ago.
Well, it probably was the detrol that made it hard for you to pee... since it's a drug that basically works by forcing the bladder muscles that are used in peeing to relax, so that they don't contract (giving you the need to pee) as often. Unfortunately if the medicine works a little TOO well then something exactly like you described can happen. Since you just started taking it, you may be right that it just took your system a little time to get used to it, and once your body is used to it you may be able to start "going" more easily again. I'd say give it a week of taking it as directed and see what happens. If you feel normal by the end of the week, you're probably fine. Of course if you ever just CAN'T pee no matter how much effort you put in, stop taking the med and get back to the doctor! Good luck, I know bladder problems are really annoying so I hope this makes things better for you! Answered by Maxima Burtless 6 months ago.
I took Detrol for a while and didn't like it. I do better without it. If I were you, I would call the doctor who gave it to you. Answered by Aracelis Ebilane 6 months ago.
Will Detrol LA cause high liver numbers in a blood test?
Asked by Mira Vallelonga 6 months ago.
Oxybutynin (Detrol) is metabolized in the liver and eliminated through the kidneys. Oxybutinin mechanism of action targets and blocks specific nerves which causes bladder contraction. It might also have effects including constipation, dry mouth, dizzyness (3 most common SE) etc because it also has effects on other nerves throughout the rest of the body as well. However, there is nothing documented with sufficient evidence to suggest that Detrol LA can increase liver enzyme levels. Answered by Kyle Nyberg 6 months ago.
When will the bladder medicine DETROL go generic?
And how does a person find out when pres. meds GO GENERIC??? Is there a website or what??
Asked by Cecil Badanguio 6 months ago.
It looks like Detrol's patient was approved in March 1998. Like the first poster said, most drug patients last for 17 years. Unfortunately, you'll be waiting a while for a generic. The FDA's list of brand-name and generic medications on their website are not very user-friendly. Best thing to do is to call up your local pharmacy if you have a question about a medication being generic. In fact, in my state, I know we are required by law to give a patient the generic form if it is available unless the doctor or they request brand name. (Of course, what the insurance company pays for is a totally different matter.) Answered by Freddie Mckillips 6 months ago.
When a pharmaceutical company manufactures a new medication, they get a patent on that medication that lasts somewhere around 17 years. I don't know how you would go about finding out when that patent is up. Answered by Eura Nhek 6 months ago.

Detrol works only as long as you take it. Depending on the specific nature of the incontinence there may be a surgical procedure available to you for a more permanent fix however. Answered by Alta Falconi 6 months ago.

Is there any medication out there for overactive bladder that's cheaper than Detrol LA?
My dr prescribed it for me but I have no insurance and it's over $100 for a 30 day supply. I can't afford that, nor can I afford to keep losing sleep because I have to go pee 8 times a night. Please help if you have any suggestions.
Asked by Cassi Stoudt 6 months ago.
Yes; ask your pharmacist for Tolterodine, which is the generic form of Detrol. I'm not sure how much cheaper it is than the name-brand drug, but generics usually help you to save a lot of money! If your doctor wrote your prescription out as "dispense as written" or "no substitution," the pharmacist has to give you the name-brand Detrol. In that case, call your doctor and ask that he/she call you in a new prescription for the generic med. Answered by Debera Nunnally 6 months ago.
Have you discussed this with your doctor??? It is possible that Detrol has a plan to help you if you find this drug too costly. Your doctor will have the necessary information. Call him an ask. . Here are some links. Read them Answered by Tobias Connally 6 months ago.

toterodine is the generic drug name for detrol. It is not a steroid of any kind. It is called a mucigenic, it competes on nerve receptors to prevent bladder spasms. Your outbreak of acne is conincidental, not caused by the detrol at all. Answered by Cordie Lapusnak 6 months ago.
Does Detrol LA take time to work?
I have been taking Detrol LA for 2 weeks for overactive bladder and have no improvement. Does it take time to work? Serious replies only.
Asked by Missy Rado 6 months ago.
There really is no definitive answer to your question. Detrol LA is mostly broken down in the liver. How you respond to treatment and your dosage depend on your degree of liver function, and some people break down these drugs more slowly. There are other ways to help control your bladder including diet changes and exercises. Visit detrolla.com to read more information. Answered by Harold Paray 6 months ago.
