Incontinence Home > Toviaz Warnings and Precautions

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.
