Detrol LA Capsules -- Drug Information

Available by prescription only, Detrol® LA (tolterodine ER) is a long-acting drug used to treat overactive bladder symptoms, such as:
 
  • Sudden, frequent urges to urinate
  • Frequent urination (needing to go more than eight times in 24 hours)
  • Leaking accidents (known as urinary incontinence or urge incontinence).
  •  
The medication is taken once a day and comes in the form of a capsule. Although generally well tolerated, it can cause side effects, such as constipation, headache, and dry mouth. At this time, Detrol LA is approved for use in adults only.
 
Although the drug is generally well tolerated, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using Detrol LA capsules, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, let your healthcare provider know if you have problems such as kidney disease, digestive problems, or any allergies.
