Review by deaddolly (taken for less than 1 month):
After trying Vesicare, Enablex and Gelnique, I was giving up. My doctor suggested trying this one...Sanctura. I saw results the very next day. I can not only sleep through the night, I am no longer running to get to the toilet in the morning. I've only been on it 5 days. No side effects yet. But I also take stool softeners. No dry mouth...no sleepiness. I also have given up caffeine at the same time I began this pill. Not sure if that helped as well, but I am now very happy!

I have been taking Sanctura for several months. It is very effective. I do have bad results with constipation. I did not take the symptoms of constipation seriously and needed help from the ER at the hospital to get relief. It is something almost all medicine stresses as a possibility, but for me it was a serious problem. I watch it more carefully now.

It has been a tremendous improvement for me. Before the medication, I was unable to play in the yard with my children because of constant urges and frequent incontinence. Now (with the medication) I am training for my first 5K run. The urges are gone and I'm able to use the bathroom like a normal person. I don't have the fear of an accident like I did before. It's amazing!

At times had terrible urgency, very problematic on travel and even daily life, meeting, traffic etc. Started with Vesicare, which worked quite well, but seemed to reach a plateau. I then started on Sanctura about 5-6 weeks ago. It seems to be even better for me than Vesicare. Very happy with it so far, even though I still not consider myself normal quite yet but any improvement is great. Compared to before the drugs, the improvement is fantastic, my best recommendations for this drug.

I am only 39 years old, and having to go constantly after drinking water or pepsi. I feel like I can't go shopping or anywhere without having to worry about it. I tried 5 different pills and this was by far the best. The only side effect I have is a dry mouth, but it's not that bad. It comes and goes, and it's not so bothersome. This is the one I'm on now, and will stay on. The one thing I don't like, is that you have to take it one hour before breakfast. Sometimes it's hard for me to wait that long before I can eat - especially if I forget to take my pill, then have to wait even longer to eat.

I started Sanctura 4 months ago, I have had urgency and incontinence for many years, and have just lived with it. I have tried all of the other medications to no avail, one or 2 days benefit only. I complained, with much embarrassment to my Urologist he gave me samples of Sanctura. I will tell you I have been accident free for 4 months, the second day I took the medicine I saw a drastic difference, I wasn't running to the bathroom every 15 minutes. Wonderful medicine. No side effects.

I started taking Sanctura a few months ago and I absolutly love it! I was urinating every 45 minutes. Since I've been taking it I can now go for 3 hours at a shot,,what a difference. The sleepiness of the pill went away after about a week of being on it. The dry mouth isn't bad. The pill has helped me wonderfully! I am so glad I take it.
