  • Enablex - Anyone have any success?

    I've seen from some of the posts on here that some people have tried Enablex and it has caused retention but I don't seem to be experiancing this as a side effect. I was wondering if anyone had tried it and had success with it and how long it took them to start feeling like it was improving their urgency and frequency ... those are my main issues and what I am trying to fix

    thanks!!

    Enablex

    I took Enablex 7.5 mg for about three months. It takes two weeks for it to build up in your system for best results. I had no side effects, no dry mouth, no constipation. It improved my frequency and pressure. I think it increased the amount I was peeing also.

        Reason

        I stopped Enablex because I was dissapointed it did nothing to help significant night time peeing. I went for a sleep evaluation and found out I had two sleep disorders: Apnea, and a restless leg disorder, I did not know I had either but they did disturb my sleep. This was resolved with 10 mg Ambien.
        That was the reason the Enablex did not work at night, I had other problems I was un aware of. I would take Enablex again, and just may.
