    Hi Tina! I'm on Ditropan and intially I didn't notice any kind of difference. In fact I almost thought it made it worst. However, after about 2 and a half weeks I started feeling better. I actually slept through the night without having to get up, I couldn't believe it. So, I would say it might take weeks before you notice any changes.
    Good Luck - I hope the meds help soon!

      Hi Jennifer,
      Thanks for the info on the Ditropan. My uro doc took me off of it and I am on Flomax now. The Flomax is supposed to help me empty more efficiently and without using much force. The doctor has me setting my alarm clock every 4 hours at night to emtpty my bladder. If I don't, then I go into spasm in the morning and have to catheterize myself and wind up having a horrible morning. I also have an Interstim device that has had to be reprogrammed a few times to help with my retention problem. The bladder spasms are horrible when they occur. Thank you for responding to my are all so wonderful. I think this site has been a god-sent for me. I feel like I have a whole bunch of friends that really understand what I am going through. Thanks again and god bless!!!
