Sanctura is a medication that is used to treat urinary incontinence, frequent urination, and other symptoms of an overactive bladder. It works by blocking certain receptors in the bladder. This helps relax the bladder muscle and reduce the uncontrollable bladder contractions that cause symptoms, such as the sudden urge to urinate. Possible side effects include fatigue, dry mouth, and constipation.
