Incontinence Home > Toviaz Warnings and Precautions

Prior to starting treatment, the warnings and precautions for Toviaz should be discussed with your healthcare provider to help minimize risks. Since Toviaz can worsen certain medical conditions, you should tell your healthcare provider about all other conditions you have (such as glaucoma, myasthenia gravis, or digestive problems) before starting treatment. You should not take Toviaz if you have difficulty passing urine or narrow-angle glaucoma.
