bethanechol for bladder spasms

Has anyone taken bethanechol 25 mg. 2 x a day.for bladder spasms ,how long did you have to take bethanechol before it worked.did it cause leg cramps, lower back pain and swelling? ## Hi Mitzi, I went ahead and looked up the possible side effects of bethanechol on several different webpages, however I found it odd that none of them listed any of those symptoms in particular. If you have been taking bethanechol and noticed anything unusual or bothersome like that I would strongly encourage you to contact your doctor about it as soon as possible to determine whether the symptoms are in fact related to bethanechol. Your doctor may recommend trying a different medication altogether if the symptoms don't improve on their own. ## Thank you for your reply. I have Systemic Lupus so on other ...

Pliva and 325 printed on the same side. ## Hello. The pill in question is Bethanechol Chloride.
