Toviaz (also known as Fesoterodine) is used to treat the symptoms associated with an overactive bladder including incontinence and frequent urination as well as urge incontinence (inability to control urination). Toviaz aids in the reduction of urine leakage, thereby improving the patient's ability to control urination. Toviaz is only available under a doctor's direction.
Toviaz is indicated for the treatment of overactive bladder, a condition characterized by the involuntary contraction of muscles in the bladder. An overactive bladder causes frequent urination, inability to control urination, and an urgent need to urinate.
Toviaz works by relaxing the muscles in the bladder, an action that improves the patient's ability to control urination. Toviaz helps reduce leaking of urine, the urge to urinate right away and the frequency of going to the bathroom. Toviaz is a class of medicines called antispasmodics.
Toviaz is usually taken once every twenty-four hours or as directed by the physician. Toviaz individual dosage is based on response to treatment, your medical condition or other drugs you are taking.
