How does Detrusitol work?
Detrusitol contains an active ingredient called Tolterodine tartrate (a type of medication that is also referred to as an antimuscarinic muscle relaxant). Hence, it works by calming down the involuntary muscle movement that takes place in the bladder wall (overactive bladder).
Detrusitol blocks receptors called muscarininc or cholinergic receptors that are located on the exterior of the muscle cells. This will then prevent the acetylcholine (natural body chemical) from acting on these said receptors.
Generally, when acetylcholine acts on muscarinic receptors, detrusor muscles contract and cause the bladder to release urine. Through the intake of Detrusitol, acetylcholine will no longer react on the receptors, which causes the wall of the bladder to relax.
How do I take Detrusitol?
Before taking Detrusitol, it is imperative that you disclose to your doctor any medical conditions that you have since its adverse effects may cause severity to your current medical condition. Normally, only a small dose of Detrusitol is taken twice a day, before or after meal.
However, if the patient feels any adverse effect, the dosage should be decreased to a lower dose. Intake of Detrusitol may take up to four (4) weeks before the benefit brought about by the treatment is seen. Hence, it is very important that the patient take the medication regularly and according to instructions (even if the patient no longer feels any discomfort) so that the treatment will not be prolonged and adverse effects will be minimal. The length of the treatment will be determined by the doctor and it largely depends on how the patient responds to the treatment.
Are there side effects?
As effective as Detrusitol may be, taking it may cause adverse effects to the patient. Common side effects include:
- Somnolence or sleepiness
- Flatulence or having excess gas in the intestines and stomach
- Paraesthesia (pins and needles)
- Dyspepsia (indigestion)
- Dry mouth
- Abdominal pain
As soon as you experience any of the side effects mentioned above, it is advised that you stop taking the medicine and consult a health professional right away. This way, any further complications will be avoided.
