Enablex Dosage

Certain factors can affect the Enablex dosage that you are prescribed, including how you respond to the drug. If symptoms of an overactive bladder do not improve after a couple of weeks, your healthcare provider may increase your dose up to 15 mg once a day. If you are taking medications that can interact with Enablex, dosing should not exceed 7.5 mg daily.

Enablex Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Enablex® (darifenacin) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • How you respond to Enablex
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Enablex Dosage for an Overactive Bladder

The recommended starting dose of Enablex for overactive bladder treatment is 7.5 mg once daily. If your overactive bladder symptoms are not adequately controlled after two weeks, your healthcare provider may increase your dose to 15 mg once daily.
 
If you are taking certain medications that increase the level of Enablex in your blood, the maximum recommended dose is Enablex 7.5 mg once daily (see Enablex Drug Interactions for more information).
 

General Information on Dosing With Enablex

Considerations for people taking Enablex include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken just once a day.
     
  • You can take Enablex with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • Enablex should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
     
  • Because Enablex is an extended-release medication, it should be swallowed whole with liquids. Do not break, chew, or crush the tablets.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Enablex will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your Enablex dosage, talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking the drug without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
