Tolterodine ER is one of the many anticholinergics available in the world. It is mainly used in correcting an overactive bladder with frequency, incontinence and urgency as associated symptoms. Tolterodine ER has no other known uses and it should be noted that it is a prescription only drug.
Tolterodine Er is used to treat an overactive bladder and incontinence. Tolterodine Er works by relaxing the muscles in the bladder. In so doing, it improves the patient’s ability to control urination. Tolterodine Er also helps reduce leakage of urine, the urgency to urinate and numerous trips to the bathroom.
Tolterodine Er is classified under a class of medications known as antispasmodics. The individual Tolterodine Er dosage will vary from one patient to the other and is often determined by the medical condition (especially if the patient is diagnosed with the kidney or liver disease) and response to treatment.
