Detrol (tolterodine) for urinary frequency, urgency, or urge incontinence
Pharmacia & Upjohn is now marketing Detrol (tolterodine) forurinary frequency, urgency, or urge incontinence.
It's an antimuscarinic like Ditropan (oxybutynin)...to inhibitbladder contractions and delay the desire to void.
Detrol seems to be as effective as Ditropan...but it's lesslikely to cause dry mouth. About 40% of patients on Detrol get drymouth...vs 80% of patients on Ditropan.
