Toviaz Warnings and Precautions

Specific Warnings and Precautions With Toviaz

Warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking Toviaz include the following:
 
  • In rare cases, this medication can cause life-threatening swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat. This can occur quickly, even after the first dose. Seek immediate medical attention if such swelling occurs.

 

  • Medications like Toviaz can cause blurred vision, dizziness, and drowsiness. Be sure to see how Toviaz affects you before driving or operating heavy machinery.
     
  • This medication may make glaucoma worse. If you have glaucoma and take Toviaz, your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely.
     
  • Toviaz can slow the digestive system. This can cause problems, especially for people who already have a slow digestive system, due to myasthenia gravis, ulcerative colitis, or other problems.
     
  • The liver and kidneys help to remove Toviaz from your body. If you have kidney disease, a lower Toviaz dosage may be recommended. If you have liver disease, you may require extra monitoring by your healthcare provider. This medication is not recommended for people with severe liver problems.
     
  • Toviaz can decrease your ability to sweat, which may increase your risk of heat stroke. Be sure to stay well hydrated in the heat.
     
  • This medication may worsen myasthenia gravis. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Toviaz if you have myasthenia gravis.
     
  • Toviaz may potentially interact with a number of other medications (see Toviaz Drug Interactions).
     
  • Toviaz is considered a pregnancy Category C medication. This means that it may not be safe for use during pregnancy, although the full risks are not known (see Toviaz and Pregnancy).
     
  • It is not known whether Toviaz passes through breast milk. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding or plan to start, discuss this with your healthcare provider prior to taking the drug (see Toviaz and Breastfeeding).
