Detrol Detrusitol Tolterodine tartrate


Detrol belongs to the group of m-cholinoblockers. This drug helps to reduce the tone of the smooth muscles of the urinary tract. 

What id Detrol

Detrol generic is a competitive m-cholinoreceptor blocker. The greatest selectivity is observed with respect to the bladder receptors. Detrusor activity during its use decreases markedly.  

With increasing dosage, the amount of residual urine increases, and complete emptying of the bladder does not occur. The therapeutic effect is observed after 1 month of regular use.

Indications for use of Detrol

The main indications for the use of Detrol:

  • urinary incontinence;

  • frequent urination;

  • the imperative urge to urination;

  • overactive bladder.

Detrol 4 mg

These are long-acting capsules. 4 mg is the optimal daily dose of the drug. Detrol medication can be taken regardless of meals, 1 time/24 hours. The whole capsule is swallowed. 

Detrol 2 mg

Long-acting capsules. 2 mg is a reduced Detrol dosage. You can take the drug in such a dose if the patient's body does not accept its components well. 

Side effects of Detrol 

Against the background of taking Detrol, dryness in the mouth appears. Some complain of mild nausea, which is accompanied by dizziness and slight weakness. Some patients have a decrease in tear fluid secretion.

Peripheral edema (of the feet, hands, or face) may occur. Swelling is sometimes accompanied by allergic itching or rashes (urticaria). Some patients complain of gastroesophageal reflux (short-term relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, characterized by pain behind the chest and in the throat, shortness of breath, feeling of a lump in the throat). 

There is flatulence, which often accompanies stool disorders (usually constipation). Abdominal pain is present (spasms of the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, irradiating to the chest. The pain may resemble the discomfort of thoracic osteochondrosis).

Patients may complain of intense sleepiness (the duration of sleep increases to 10-12 hours, but even after that, the person does not feel rested and quickly becomes fatigued). Confusion of consciousness is less often observed.

Side effects of Detrol in elderly people

People over 60 years of age may have problems with the nervous system during the use of Detrol generic. They complain about memory impairment (temporarily reduced ability to remember). In severe cases, disorientation is observed. Some elderly people have hallucinations (this happens against the background of worsening signs of dementia).

Elderly people complain about an increased heartbeat. This symptom is accompanied by shortness of breath, weakness, profuse sweating, tinnitus. 

Oxybutynin versus Detrol

Oxybutynin is an antispasmodic. Its use helps eliminate spasms and reduce smooth muscle tone. The main effects are m-cholinoblocking and antispasmodic. With regular use, the capacity of the bladder increases, and the frequency of detrusor contractions decreases. Against this background, the urge to urination occurs less frequently. 

Oxybutynin is prescribed for long-term therapy. Detrol medication is prescribed for a certain period of time. Unlike Detrol, Oxybutynin is prescribed for children (if the bladder dysfunction is neurogenic in nature).
