    I have a 14 day sample in my cupboard but currently am taking vesicare. If one doesn't work that doesn't mean another won't help you. I've tried a couple, took oxybutynin for a couple years and now the vesicare which I like better. My doc said toviaz is one of the newer ones out there.

        The main side effects are the drying effects like dry mouth, dry eyes, constipation though I don't think nearly as bad as elavil or the likes. Other then the dryness I don't personally notice a thing. I was a little tired the first few days but that went away. I hope you don't get retention! It should really help with the freq/urges and definitely the spasms, I was having them really bad and now haven't had one in a long while. Thats mostly why I take it. Some people do get retention, hope you're not one of them. I think most of them take about 6 hours to reach full effectiveness until the next dose 24 hours later. Just make sure to wait until you really feel like you gotta go.

          well I am already feeling the dry mouth....If I had retention (i guess that means not being able to pee??) would that go away if I stop the pill or would I have to be cathetered????

          If I am already feeling the dry mouth effect does that mean the Urges..would have let up?? Bc those havent yet

            I don't want to freak you out because there is no reason to believe you will have retention at this point. The pills last 24 hours, if its a 4mg pill then thats the lowest dose. It can take a few days to reach full effectiveness and I think the manufacturers of those types of meds say give it a 3-4 weeks. I definitely noticed a positive difference in a couple days, kind of a relaxing of my bladder like it was all tense and probably had been because I kept getting spasms. If you absolutely couldn't go then yes you'd probably have to get cathed. Try and not worry too much about it because that will only make you feel tense and if you're tense it will make it harder to go. I often have a weak stream too because I go too often and don't have a problem with these meds. Just remember hundreds of thousands of people take those meds with no problems and hopefully you will be one of them too.

                Just do something to distract yourself, something pleasant. Is the weather nice? go for a walk or watch a good show or listen to music or read a book. Breathe deep. Do you work out? it helps get rid of the stress and anxiety. I listen to audio books and like to get away from it all by being in someone else's story. Post later how you're doing. LOTS of meds say they cause retention but that doesn't mean everyone gets it. They have to list every side effect no matter what percentage of people actually experience them. I have stopped reading them because its too upsetting. I'll only read the basics and never what the drugstore gives me unless I experience something then I'll go look at them and see if its related to the med.

                So sorry you're upset!

                    Hope you're still good and will notice a relief in the next day or two with frequency/spasms.
