Is There A Generic Drug The Same As Detrol La?

I am looking for a cheaper drug that my insurance company will cover that is a generic. Similar and that will do the same thing as Detrol LA> ## Well, there is no current generic for the Detrol LA, from the approval time line, that probably won't become available until after September 2012. The only alternative medication that I can find that is available as a generic would be Ditropan XL, which contains the active ingredient Oxybutynin. You can learn more about it here: Are there any other questions? ## Thanks so much you have been a big help. ## I was just wondering if your insurance was ok with Ditropan XL?

generic for detrol

My insurance coverage doesn't allow for me to use the Name brand Detrol LA, so they have substituted the generic form. I have found that it doesn't work. I find I am running to the bathroom just as often as before the on the generic. The name brand did work fine. A little frustrating. The generics should be required to work the same way before being mandated to be a comparable substitute. These are drugs you are taking with side effects and conditions that need to be properly addressed. We are still paying for these sad replacements. ## They are required to work the same way. It could be that this medication just doesn't work for you and you may need to try something else. There are several other options available, such as Ditropan LA. The FDA lists its typical side effects ...

Detrol Dl, Ditropan, Versicare or Toviaz

Which of these drugs is better to treat male incontinence? I can empty my bladder normally, but when I have to do it, I have to go in a hurry, before I wet my pants. ## What medication is more effective for Diabetis? ## What has your doctor advised you to use for either problem? All of the medications you listed, as well as antidiabetic medications have been shown to be effective at treating the conditions they are intended to treat. That is why they have been approved by the FDA and are on the market. There is, however, no way to say which will be the most effective for you. The best thing to do is to discuss it with your doctor and try the medications that they recommend.

Beer Side Effects pricription drugs

sideaffects mixing aircept with detrol? ## side effects with aircept and detrol ## The reason you are told not to drink, while taking prescription medications, is due to the fact that it can aggravate the side effects, so you may experience more dizziness, drowsiness and nausea, than usual. This could make one drink the same as drinking two and so on. Generally, the Aricept and Detrol should not be prescribed and used together, because they tend to negate each others effects on the body. Has your doctor instructed you to use both? If they do so, they have to very carefully adjust the dosages of both medications.
