Toviaz Uses

How Does Toviaz Work?

Toviaz belongs to a group of drugs known as anticholinergic or antimuscarinic medications. It works by blocking certain receptors (called muscarinic receptors) in the bladder, relaxing the muscles of the bladder. Since an overactive bladder is often caused by bladder muscles that contract too frequently and uncontrollably, Toviaz can help relieve many of the symptoms of an overactive bladder.
 
Anticholinergic medications (including Toviaz) have effects on the entire body, not just the bladder. This can cause numerous different side effects that can limit the usefulness of such medications for some people (see Toviaz Side Effects for more information).
 

Toviaz Use in Children

Toviaz is not approved for use in children. Talk to your healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using Toviaz in children.
 

Off-Label Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Toviaz for treating something other than an overactive bladder. At this time, however, there are no universally accepted off-label uses for Toviaz.
