Riley · Taken for 1 to 2 years · August 26, 2018

For Urinary Frequency "I am 72 and been on It for over a year The only problem is it tends to not be as affective after a while. Took 5mg twice a day. Now going to try 5mg once a day Side effects have been minimal. Some dry mouth and constipation Drinking more water helps both."

For Urinary Frequency "This is the third medicine I've tried. You rub it into your thigh or arm area (I couldn't do arms because I have tattoos and was told not to because of that.). It takes awhile to dry and is sticky. I was paranoid one of my dogs would get it on their skin, as they are always on my lap. One a scale of 1 to 10 if 10 is perfect, I would give this a 4. It worked a little, enough to notice, but not enough to be happy. I did not like applying it at all. I am now on Santura and love it. See my review of that medicine. Good luck!"

For Urinary Frequency "Gelnique was the second medicine I tried for overactive bladder. It worked fine for my problem, but it takes a bit for it to soak in after you rub it on your skin. It leaves a sticky residue which makes your clothes stick to the area. It is also very drying to the skin. I have very dry skin and my dermatologist gave me prescriptions for moisture barriers, so Gelnique was not a good option for me."

For Urinary Frequency "I just started the Gel, which I choose because it does not cause high blood pressure and I did not want to take any more pills. So far so good. If you follow the directions, and rub the gel in until your skin is dry, there is no sticky residue. I then just put regular cream over the sight. I'm currently having some stomach cramping but I'm not sure if it is because of the medicine. "
