Sanctura Dosage

For the treatment of an overactive bladder, the recommended Sanctura dosage is 20 mg twice a day. If you have kidney disease, your healthcare provider may suggest a lower dose, such as 20 mg once daily. For people 75 and older who are starting Sanctura, dosing may also be decreased to 20 mg once a day (especially if bothersome side effects occur).

Sanctura Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Sanctura® (trospium chloride) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • How you respond to Sanctura
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Sanctura Dosage for an Overactive Bladder

The recommended starting dose of Sanctura for overactive bladder treatment is 20 mg twice daily. However, your healthcare provider may recommend a lower dose (Sanctura 20 mg once daily at bedtime) if you have kidney disease.
 
If you are age 75 or older, your healthcare provider may consider decreasing your dose to 20 mg once daily, especially if you are experiencing bothersome Sanctura side effects. Elderly people seem more likely to experience bothersome side effects.
 

General Information on Dosing With Sanctura

Considerations for people taking Sanctura include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth twice a day.
     
  • Sanctura should be taken at least one hour before a meal, since it should be taken on an empty stomach.
     
  • The medication should be taken at the same times each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Sanctura will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your Sanctura dosage, talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking the drug without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
