ditropan and abdominal pain

I am taking ditropan for an incontinence problem. It seems to be working but the side effects are unbearable. I am experiencing severe abdominal pain like trapped wind and it has now been 11 hours of agony. ## That can be a side effect of this medication, according to the U.S. FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and blurred vision. How long have you been taking it? Have you informed your doctor? You may need to try a different medication. ## I was taking it for 8 days but have stopped now. I've seen my doctor and he is trying me on another tablet but I haven't plucked up the courage to try it yet. I am still having the stomach pains even after 4 days tablet free.

Ditropan Vs Toviaz

Are ditropan and Toviaz`in the same family of meds? ## Hi Lynn, To answer your question directly, Toviaz (Fesoterodine) is in a class of medications called antimuscarinics. It works by relaxing the bladder muscles to prevent urgent, frequent, or uncontrolled urination. Ditropan (Oxybutynin) is in a class of medications called anticholinergics. Although it also works by relaxing the bladder muscles to prevent urgent, frequent, or uncontrolled urination. That said, they are in different drug categories, but nevertheless, they are indicated to perform in the same manner. I hope this helps answer your question!

I need to know if my doctor gave me the correct medication. This is supposed to be Ditropan XL 15mg but every picture of Ditropan XL 15mg looks different than this new pill I just got at the pharmacy. This is a new pharmacy for me so I just want to make sure I'm getting the right pill.

ditropan

need to see what the pill looks like so I can find it among others in my medicne cabnet ## Unfortunately there are many, many of these pills, all made by different companies, they all look different and have different markings, because it is now available as a generic. The only way anyone can help you, without knowing the imprint, is if you are looking for the name brand pill, which clearly has Ditropan written on it. Otherwise, you will have to provide us with some imprints that we can look up for you. ## please let me know what a pill is....it's long and oval, reddish/rust in color, and has what looks to be a 1-2 on it. Thank you for any help on this matter. phyllis
