Gail · Taken for 1 to 6 months December 27, 2020

For Urinary Frequency: “Enablex worked well for the first few days, but now I am leaking as much as before. Legs swelling and I certainly don’t need the weight gain!”

For Urinary Frequency: “It helps me not to pee so frequently but when I go to the toilet, it takes a lot of time for the pee to come out. Also I have been swelling a lot and I am also constipated.”

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.”

Laura Powell · Taken for 1 to 6 months June 11, 2013

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.”

deaddolly · Taken for less than 1 month July 22, 2012

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!”

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!”
