Solifenacin 5mg anyone?

Hi been to doctors today because of my stupid bladder overactive and driving me nuts. She wants me to try Solifenacin 5mg, anyone else on this. i see it is a relatively new drug on the market.

Hi Crazy Chick

I don’t think the drug is new. The generic name is Solifenacin, but the most common brand, Vesicare, has been on the market for several years. I tried it briefly in 2012 but had to stop because I had a nasty little side effect of my feet and ankles (aka oedema).

Best of luck with it. Overactive bladder is a horrible symptom and finding the right drug for it can take time and experimentation.
