When and How to Take Toviaz

General considerations include the following:
  • Toviaz comes in extended-release tablet form. It is taken just once a day.
  • Because this is an extended-release medication, it should be swallowed whole with liquids. Do not break, chew, or crush the tablets.
  • You can take Toviaz on an empty stomach or with food. If it seems to bother your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Toviaz should be taken at the same time each day, in order to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

  • How you respond to this medication
  • Other medications you may be taking
