How does Vesicare work?
Vesicare tablets have an active ingredient called solifenacin succinate (a type of medicine classified as antimuscarinic muscle relaxant). It works by relaxing the involuntary movements of the muscles located on the wall of the bladder.
The detrusor muscle (muscle in the bladder wall) can sometimes contract in uncontrollable spasms (more referred to as an overactive bladder). An over active bladder can cause a patient to urinate more often than normal. At times, the over active detrusor muscle can even cause involuntary urination.
Thus, by using Vesicare as treatment, the detrusor muscle found in the bladder wall is relaxed. This is done by blocking the muscarinic receptors located on the surface of the muscle cells. This restrains the acetylcholine (a natural body chemical) from acting on the muscarinic receptors.
The positive effect brought about by Vesicare takes at least four (4) weeks to become evident and fully effective.
How do I take Vesicare?
Before you start to drink medications such as Vesicare, it is important that you disclose your current health condition to your doctor. Through this, your doctor will know if you are fit to take Vesicare since it may cause adverse effects.
Generally, the starting dosage for Vesicare is low. If the patient can tolerate the given starting dosage, it will then be increased to a higher dosage. The usual intake of Vesicare is once a day, with or without food.
Vesicare must be taken with water and should be swallowed as a whole. This means that crushing Vesicare into tiny bits is not advised. Furthermore, the dosage and the length of the treatment depend on how the patient reacts to the medication.
Are there side effects?
Based on the studies done on the people who have used Vesicare, some of them experience adverse effects such as:
- Feeling sick

When you experience any side effect (even those that are not mentioned above), immediately stop taking Vesicare, and consult your doctor as soon as possible.
