Enablex, generically known as Darifenacin, is a medication primarily used to reduce muscle spasms of the urinary tract and the bladder. However, this drug is highly contraindicated for patients who have untreated or uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma, a stomach disorder causing delay emptying, or for those who have trouble emptying their bladder. Moreover, the patient should be careful to avoid activities that lead to dehydration like exercise or hot water during the therapy.
Enablex is used to treat an overactive bladder. It works by loosening the muscles in the bladder, thereby improving the patient’s ability to control urination. Enablex also helps lessen leaking of urine and the frequency of urination as well as the frequent trips to the bathroom. This drug is classified under a group of medicines known as antispasmodics. Enablex is available in tablets and extended-release tablets. Be sure not to crush the tablets to avoid releasing all of the drug, which may increase the risk of side effects. Enablex is usually swallowed with a full glass of water once every day.
