I have been prescribed 5 mg. of solifenacin succinate for a continuing leaky bladder following prostate cancer surgery several years ago. I'm 5 days into taking the drug and have experienced frequent loose bowel movements and now diarrhea. I've also had minor stomach nausea. Has anyone else had this experience?

Abdominal pain is a side effect, but constipation appears to be a common side effect and not loose bowel motions. However, it is quite possible.
Could there be any other reason for the diarrhea?
