Stopping Detrol La

Mary Says:

I would like to stop taking Detrol LA. Do I need to stop at once or go off of it slowly. My eyes have been getting worse since being on the drug.

It really depends on how long you have been taking it regularly, if it has been several months to a year or more, then you will probably need to slowly taper off of it.

You should speak with your doctor about the problems you are having with it and they can probably help you with the best way to stop taking it.

Anytime you are taking a med for a long period of time, your body gets used to having it, this is called Dependence and if you try to stop suddenly, you will suffer some mild withdrawal symptoms.

I loved that Detrol let me sleep through the night
Besides dry eye and throat I’m dizzy and exhausted a lot and I get out of breath walking up stairs.
Just need to learn how to discontinue.
