Myrbetriq side effects
I started taking Myrbetriq 4 months ago. About 2 months ago I became very dizzy and was diagnosed with Vertigo. I am now in therapy for it, but nothing is really helping it. I am concerned it is a side effect. Otherwise this med is fabulous. Has anyone else suffered from this or did this just happen to me? ## Yes, that can be a side effect of this medication, though for it to be that severe and cause vertigo isn't very common. But most medications that are used to treat overactive bladder can cause dizziness and vertigo. It would also explain why therapy isn't helping the situation. I had that happen with a medication myself last year and it was quite miserable for awhile, until I finally connected it to the medication I had been taking and stopped. Have you tried exercises and ...

Myrbetric
Help, could this be side effect? Taking 25 mg for about a month now. Have nausea, headache, and dry eyes. Has anyone else had an eye issue? I feel like my eyeballs are going to pop out. Had great success with myrbetriq but can't tolerate the side effects ## Hello, Patty! How are you? Yes, it has been known to cause dry eyes in some people that take it, along with the other symptoms you've described. If you've been on it for abut a month, it should start to taper off soon, until the side effects gradually go away as your body adjusts to it. Is there anything else I can help with?

Side effect of Myrbetriq
I am also taking Myrbetriq and started to have dizzy spells and was wondering if it also was related to medicine. Never had them before and I am starting my 5th month on drug. I liked the drug better than others I was on as dry mouth went away and constipation was much better. Also no problem with OAB. I read al material and nowhere does it mention dizzy spells or feeling light headed as a side effect. Anyone else have these symptoms? ## Hello, Georgie girl! How are you? It is listed in the detailed side effects of this medication and reported to occur in less than 1% of the people that take it. You may also experience blurred vision, bladder pain and rash. But, it would be best to have this checked out, just to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with?

utis
I went uro doc for a follow up because I have frequent utis and urgency to urinate and actually I felt ok. She started me on myrbetriq and guess what, my urgency started again. Also, I have read it can cause utis and one of my main complaints is chronic utis. The side effects of this medicine can cause you have the problems this medicine is suppose to remedy. Explain that. ## Hi Kathy, There are lots of prescription drugs that cause the same problems as the ones they are supposed to treat. It's pretty ridiculous! Have you ever tried any natural/homeopathic remedies? I've heard that coconut milk, coconut water, and cranberry juice can be really effective. I deal with a condition called interstitial cystitis which causes an urgency to urinate and all sorts of wonderful related iss...
