An Introduction to Sanctura XR Side EffectsAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Sanctura® XR (trospium XR). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Sanctura XR. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Sanctura XR side effects with you.)
