How long before myrbetriq starts to work

I have been on 50mg of myrbetriq for 4 days without any relief...how long does this medication take to start working? ## Hello, Mickey! How are you? While it should start to have some effect within the first few days of taking it, it can take 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in the body, for you to know if it is going to work for you, nor not. Have you experienced any of its typical side effects, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, blurred vision and headache? ## Thank you for your answer. Thankfully I have not had any reaction to the Myrbetriq. I did call my doctor today and I was taking it before bed, he told me to start taking it in the morning and that it may work better. Thank you again ## I took it just one night and I had insomnia d...

Myrbetriq

I started to take Myrbetriq 5 days ago and I am having severe fatigue. Just wondering if any one else has felt the same way. Thanks. ## I have elderly mom and she is battling cancer her side effects were not fatigue but exhausting super weak. Nausea but worse of all memory loss severe in two months. I am taking off immediately as her brain was perfect cancer she fought for nine years this medicine for her was a bad choice didn't help bladder at all ## I started to take Myrbetriq a little over six weeks ago. I'm a little thick and it took me awhile, but I finally figured out that it was causing my extreme fatigue and sleepiness. The reason I was confused is that I had been having a lot of trouble sleeping so my PCP prescribed Remeron. Since I started taking them both about the sa...

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 ...

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...

best time of day to take myrbetriq

Just starting out on Myrbetriq and was wondering when is the best time of the day to take this medicine?? ## Hello, Chuck! How are you? There is no real best time of day to take it, it really depends on you and how your body reacts to it. Some people may experience a lot of dizziness and drowsiness, as listed among the side effects provided by the FDA, so some people do better taking it at night, before bed, so the worst have worn off by morning. Other side effects may also include nausea, blurred vision and dry mouth. What instructions did your doctor provide? ## My doctor has prescribed hydrochlorot (fluid pill) that I take in the morning. Myrbetriq has been described bladder control. Is this normal? If so, when should I take the myrbetriq? ## Taking it 2 days can't sleep. Is this...

Phenobarbital and Myrbetriq

I was prescribed Myrbetriq for a spasmatic bladder, but it is not working and I stopped taking it. The pharmacist says it does not work when taking Phenobarbital and it is a waste of time. Does anyone else take these two drugs? ## There are no interactions listed, but there is no way to know how something may, or may not work, once it's outside of controlled studies and out in real world use. The typical side effects that the FDA lists may include nausea, dizziness, headache, urinary retention, and blurred vision. How long were you taking it? Have you tried any other medications? ## I ONLY TOOK IT FOR 3 WEEKS AND IT DID NOTHING. STILL WENT TO BATHROOM ABOUT 5 TIMES AT NIGHT. I TRIED ANOTHER PILL SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND IT HAD THE SAME EFFECT. ## Hi No side effects but Pharmacist said ...

Back and neck spasm on myrbetriq?

Has anyone experienced back and neck spasm while taking myrbetriq? I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg for several years after bladder spasms start post hysterectomy. The Wellbutrin XL causes increased muscle tension, but tolerable as long as I do not increase the dosage. However, since starting the Myrbetriq, I am having increased neck and back spasms which is not responding to bodywork or muscle relaxers. I was thinking maybe the Myrbetriq may affect the same part of the brain as the Wellbutrin(which worked well for many years for the bladder spasms). Would appreciate feedback. ## Body aches, joint aches, pain and spasms are listed by the FDA as being possible side effects of this medication. How long have you been taking it? Side effects are usually transient and go away, once you...

Myrbetriq 25mg and Torisamide 20mg

I'm prescribed Myrbetriq 1x daily at noon + Torisamide 2x weekly, when needed for water retention. When I use the Torisamide, I lose the effects at night of the Myrbetriq due to less sleep (getting up every two hours to use the bathroom). This goes on for at least three days or more. Can anything be done? It's defeating the purpose of the procedure "urlift". ## Well, the Torsemide is used to help remove excess fluid from the body, so yes, it is normal that it will make your urinate more, that is just one of its normal side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, dehydration, and hypotension. Generally, it is not advised to take it with a medication like Myrbetriq, since you already have frequent urination issues. How often do you experience fluid retention that ...

Myrbetriq - bladder not able to fully release

Has anyone else experienced problems with the bladder not being able to fully release urine and retention while taking Myrbetriq? If so, how long were you on the drug? And did that eventually resolve itself? ## That can be a side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports, and they do advise that you contact your doctor, since it does not always resolve, so this might not be the best medication choice for you. You may need to try something else. How much fluid do you take in each day? Are you on any other medications?

Myrbetriq working intermittenly

I have been on Myrbetric for about 6 months and for a while it works really well and then it lessens and does not work as well then it seems to come back again. Not sure why it does not work consistently and wondering if anyone else has had this experience? ## Some of it can really depend on your own body chemistry, our hormones tend to fluctuate throughout the month, so at any given time, it is conceivable that this could affect how well any given medication works. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, and urinary retention. However, there is also a chance that it isn't the right medication to help you, so you may need to consult your doctor about trying a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Than...
