Detrol is used to treat overactive bladder symptoms, such as urinary incontinence and frequent urination. It works by relaxing the bladder muscle, which minimizes the frequent and uncontrollable bladder contractions that cause an overactive bladder. Detrol comes in tablet form and is typically taken twice a day. Side effects include dry mouth, headache, and constipation.
- Frequent urination (usually defined as needing to go more than eight times in 24 hours)
- Sudden, frequent urges to urinate
