    Yes, I used it. It is basically the drug Ditropan in a patch form. I personally had bad luck; most of those drugs make me retain urine, which makes me feel worse. Plus, I was allergic to the adhesive used to stick it on and ended up with a horrible rash.

    HOWEVER, keep on trying it for a few weeks. We are all different and you might have a great response. Good luck

    *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
    *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).
