Reviews for Darifenacin

zahnermin · November 1, 2011

Enablex (darifenacin) for Urinary Frequency: “I have been taking this medication for I am guessing two years and have loved it. Not really had any side effects that I could think that were any big deal. Now all of a sudden about a week or two ago I can not go a day without an accident or a close call. I need to figure out something soon.”

Enablex (darifenacin) for Urinary Frequency: “I was on vesicare for over a year and didn't feel much relief. When my Doctor changed me to Enablex I got immediate results without the annoying dry mouth symptoms. Been on this medication for 2 years and I love it!”

Enablex (darifenacin) for Urinary Frequency: “Took this medication for three months. It made me burn and raw, even alternating it to three times a week. Directions said not to cut, so I couldn't back down more. It seems the medication worked as far as the bladder symptoms but was unusable for me on a long term basis.”

Enablex (darifenacin) for Urinary Incontinence: “I'm on Day 3 and notice a big change. No more accidents in the morning on the way to the toilet! I am also on an estrogen cream called Estrace and have used that once. Time will tell if this really works: I was on Vesicare for a few weeks and got great results, then it began NOT to work and severe constipation made me stop taking it. I will be adding fiber to my diet and work to prevent the constipation before it takes me over again. Went to a urogynecologist this time. P.S There is a mint you can try for dry mouth. It has one side of it with a sticky ingredient that will stick to your mouth so you don't swallow it. It works!”

Enablex (darifenacin) for Urinary Frequency: “Worked fine from day one. Stopped the urge for frequent trips to the bathroom. I have not had any symptoms of side effects such as swelling of feet or legs etc, Been taking daily 7.5mg. Only complaint is the very expensive cost.”

For Urinary Incontinence: “Been on it for about 2 years. It worked great for the first few months than I started getting all the side affects. Dry mouth, blurred vision, swelling, weight gain, dry eyes, headaches, and constipation. Since being off of it for 6 days, all the side effects are subsiding. The swelling in my face is going down. I’m going regularly now. Even lost a couple of pounds. I think I’ll stick to holistic approaches. Keagle exercise and being mindful of timing my water intake.”

For Overactive Bladder: “I was on Enablex before but I quit using it because my sleep was still disrupted. My Dr asked how I was sleeping without it and there was no difference. I'm on it now and considering quitting it again because it is not helping.”

Enablex (darifenacin) for Urinary Frequency: “I've been using this medication for 2 weeks. So far it helped me with my incontinence, but as far as the urgency and tension in the bladder goes I see no improvement. I've been previously using Solifenacin and that particular drug helped me with the urgency and tension, but had no effect on the incontinence. Overall I prefer Solifenacin to Darifenacin (Enablex)”
