Hello Bill
Welcome to our Forum , am so sorry no one has been able to reply for you.

I found this on our website

Antimuscarinic agents such as Oxybutynin, Vesicare and Toviaz are the current treatment standard but doctors will now be able to offer patients an alternative new treatment that works in a different way.

I would ask you to please contact the BHUK office from tomorrow, and if you become or are already a member not only will they offer you some good advice, but may have some fact sheets to help you.

Kind regards

Like Bill I also take 10mg a day, and have also noticed I get a very dry mouth. It's mostly in the mornings, so keeping some water by the bed solves it pretty quickly, but honestly Vesicare, one way or another, solved all of the problems that I was having when I was first here. Even if what I was experiencing was related to stress also, it helped me calm down and was able to enjoy my life again. I suggest that anyone who is considering this medication to give it a try.

Hi guys,

I wanted to ask, how long does it take for the vesicare to start working? I took it for 4 weeks before and then stopped as it didn't work!
