  • How long does it take for antispasmodics, specifically trospium to work?

    Well I guess the title says it all. Ditropan helps the pain but made me so tired so now I am trying trospium and I am in so much pain and I wonder how long I have to wait. It’s like torture. This is probably because I’ve had 20 years with a lot of medical problems and that’s really worn me down. I’m also confused by why one would work and one wouldn’t.
    Best to everyone,

    I'm sorry to be so slow in responding. The length of time for response can vary with the individual, as well as the medication. There are some antispasmodics that work very quickly for me; others can take longer. I like to begin a new medication in the evening so if it makes me sleepy, I can go to bed. I hope you are finding some relief.

    Sending warm healing wishes,
    Stay safe
