Side effects of Toviaz

Did anyone have heart palpitations while taking Toviaz? I took it for 6 days and last night had heart palpitations for 5 hours. I also started the estrogen drug Osphena on the same day.

toviaz quit working

After taking for 5 years, toviaz just quit working. Is it normal to build up a resistance? Will it start working again if I keep using it? ## Hello, Corky! How are you? Yes, our bodies will eventually become tolerant to anything that we ingest regularly for a long period of time. There is no precise time frame for it, it varies from person to person, but it is completely normal. And no, you'll most likely need to try a different medication. Taking a break from it, for awhile, may enable to work again for you, in the future. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Toviaz as possibly include nausea, dizziness, blurred vision and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Have you figured out what happened I had the same happen to me.

Toviaz stops working

I have oab for about 3-4 years now and I have been take toviaz for that time. During my vacation I need to urinate a lot, but I never consumed that much liquid. When I got back towards the afternoon I'd have my symptoms of oab come back. Now I take toviaz and only feel the side affects and I have the urge to urinate all the time. Is this still oab? Or something else, or is it just time for a new oab drug? ## Hello, Marshel! How are you doing? Has there been any change? It is really hard to say, how much liquid did you consume? What side effects are you experiencing? The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and blurry vision.

Toviaz has stopped working

I have been taking Toviaz for several years with great results. Recently it has stopped working and my old symptoms have returned. I have heard that I can stop taking it and then reintroduce it again at a later date. Does anyone know how long I should leave it off for?

Toviaz stopped working after 4 weeks

I started taking Toviaz to help with my frequent urination. It worked great for about 4 weeks but then it lost its effectiveness. My urologist said that that didn't make sense. That's what happened though. He said I hadn't been on it long enough to build up a tolerance to it. Has anyone else who has been on it experienced the loss of effectiveness after such a short period of time? I'm a 45 year old male. ## Hello, Shane! How are you? It is very odd for it to lose effectiveness that fast, but not impossible. That's just what happens with some people. What other medications have you tried to treat this issue? Is it being caused by a prostate issue? If so, worsening of that may also have contributed. ## I had the same experience with Toviaz, Detrol, and Myrbetriq. My d...

can this pill be cut toviaz 8 mg in half

can i cut toviaz 8 mg er in half to take 4 mg? ## Hello, Ivonne! How are you? The ER designates this medication as being time released, so no, you cannot safely cut it, because that may cause you to get too much of the medication, at once, which may result in overdose. The FDA lists this medication as being used to treat overactive bladder. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, dry eyes and blurred vision. Is there anything else I can help with?

Toviaz 4mg containing Fesoterodine Fumarate, Made by Pfizer Ltd.

Toviaz 4mg tabs were prescribed to me by my Urology Consultant after my TURP operation on 24th March 2014 while I was in U.K. These are for overactive bladder incontinence (men). I am unable to buy or find a Pharmacist who can get these tabs for me in Mumbai. I have tried the Chemists in Princess Street, Mumbai as well. Is there any equivalent brand name available in India? Other tabs like Proazasin are no good for me as they de-hydrate me completely and I faint while walking or standing.

Side Effects Of Toviaz Primarily If Intense Itching Is Common

My aunt, age 95, recently began taking Toviaz, along with Premarin cream, due to chronic incontinence. These meds helped her greatly, but now she has intense itching in the genital area and also her back. I have taken Premarin and believe it must be due to the Toviaz.
