Vesicare review by 62 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   overactive bladder
Dosage & duration:   5 mgm. by mouth, once a day taken daily for the period of 1 year and ongoing
Other conditions:   pelvic prolapse;mild asthma; allergic rhinitis; hypothyroidism
Other drugs taken:   Allegra; Nasacort; Premarin; Levoxyl; Advair Diskus
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Urinary frequency and urgency have been substantially reduced; I have a vastly improved lifestyle because these problems no longer inhibit my activities.
Side effects:   I experienced mild constipation in the beginning but because I eat a vegetarian diet I have been able to manage this side effect easily by increasing dietary fiber. No other measures have been necessary.
Comments:   My gynecologist changed me to Vesicare when I complained about side effects from the previous Rx I was on for overactive bladder. (These were dry mouth and constipation.) After beginning to take Vesicare daily, I noticed an immediate improvement, i.e., sharp decrease in the negative side effects. I plan to continue the use of Vesicare because there seem to be no prohibitions to its long term use. It may also possibly postpone surgical repair of the pelvic prolapse.
