Sanctura XR

Effects of Sanctura XR

Studies have shown that this drug can help relieve many of the symptoms of an overactive bladder. In clinical studies, people who took it significantly reduced the frequency of bladder accidents. Also, people who took the drug needed to urinate less frequently and were able to pass more urine each time they used the bathroom (the frequent muscle contractions of an overactive bladder usually prevent the bladder from holding a normal amount of urine). For most people, Sanctura XR started to work within the first week of use.
