Enablex Overdose: An Introduction

Enablex® (darifenacin) is a prescription medication used for the relief of overactive bladder symptoms. It belongs to a group of drugs known as anticholinergic medications. The effects of an Enablex overdose will vary, depending on a number of factors, such as the Enablex dosage and whether it is taken with other medicines, alcohol, or street drugs.
 
If you happen to overdose on Enablex, seek immediate medical attention.
 

Symptoms of an Enablex Overdose

As an anticholinergic medication, Enablex often causes a certain group of side effects (known as anticholinergic side effects), which may be more severe in the case of an overdose. These side effects include:
 
  • Difficulty passing urine
  • Dilated (wide open) pupils
  • Dry mouth or eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Severe constipation
  • Increased pressure within the eyes.
     

Treatment for an Enablex Overdose

It is not known how best to treat an Enablex overdose. Therefore, treatment will usually involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For instance, if an overdose causes a rapid heart rate, then supportive treatment would include medications to decrease the heart rate.
 
It is important that you seek prompt medical attention if you believe that you may have overdosed on Enablex.
