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 Jesusita Proco 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 Chau Orlosky 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 Karla Buzis 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.

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 Myrle Magouyrk 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 Vonnie Vanorsdale 6 months ago.

Hi "WenWen"! I am including a link to a site which will give you information on this drug. Here is a part of what the article says: "When it comes to seeing results, everyone is different. Some people’s symptoms begin to improve as soon as the first week that they take DETROL LA. Most patients continue to improve as they take DETROL LA for several months. So, if you just started taking DETROL LA, be sure to give it a full chance to work. Also make sure to keep taking DETROL LA for as long as your doctor prescribes. If you stop taking DETROL LA, your symptoms may return." I sure will be praying the medicine starts taking effect real soon! Love you!!! :) Answered by Lowell Bilyeu 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 Dayle Ciotti 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 Angelyn Balton 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 Nelle Biggers 6 months ago.
What medicine BESIDES "DETROL LA" is good for an overactive bladder??
My doctor has given me DETROL LA and I'm having a side effect from it. TIRED DIZZY FATIQUE. "HELP"
Asked by Mellissa Spinas 6 months ago.
Ditropan (oxybutynin) has really helped me. It may have the same side effects that you have with Detrol. (Dry mouth, drowsiness, rapid heart beat). Before spending money on another visit to the Doctor and on different medicine......Have you tried taking 1/2 the recommended dosage? I also skip some days when I know I'm going to be home all day.

Will Detrol LA cause high liver numbers in a blood test?
Asked by Jerome Riccardo 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 Vanda Caulder 6 months ago.
When is the best time of the day to take Detrol LA?
In the morning, afternoon, evening, or right before bed? Do you need to drink a lot of water with it? Any drug or supplement interactions?
Asked by Gayla Tyksinski 6 months ago.
One of the common side effects is sleepiness. I'd start with an afternoon/evening dose and see how much that affects me before trying a morning dose. However, they claim you can take it any time of the day. Given that its for an overactive bladder, I'd try to take the pill with some liquids that I was going to drink anyway(OJ with breakfast/etc). From the official website(see link) : "The recommended dosage for most patients is one capsule once a day. It can be taken at any time of day. Try to take it at the same time each day so you don’t forget. Take DETROL LA with or without food. Take it with liquids and swallow the pill whole. " Answered by Henriette Doub 6 months ago.
