 1  OAB Bad memory & decision-making + URTICARIA = really itchy spots for 10 weeks! (Age 40, no children) I started taking Vesicare in April and it helped with the urgency after years of struggling, but in September, I started noticing bad memory and bad decision-making + an onslaught of incredibly itchy wheals - red raised extremely itchy pea-sized spots on arms, chest & back. Stopped taking Vesicare immediately, but symptoms continue until now - December! I get about 5 new itchy spots per day, driving me crazy. Was prescribed strong ANTI-HISTAMINES in November, but that seems to have made URGENCY SUDDENLY WORSE, now having to wear incontinence pads, but nothing is bringing down the spots, still new ones appearing and lasting for average 5 days, extremely itchy, and leaving scars, even though I'm really trying not to scratch them. (Finally found a homeopathic tincture that works really well to immediately calm the itch, called "Anti Bite"!) even though most people don't think they are bites. Been to 4 GPs, had lots of blood tests including auto-immune tests, all came back normal, no-one seems to know what it is! So I forked out £150 for a private Dermatologist (as I am due to travel to India for 6 weeks later in December and needed to know if I was safe to go!) - he tested me for House Dust Mites and I came up seriously positive for that, so he concluded it was that, and called it Urticaria, but couldn't identify what triggered it - so I had thought it's the build-up of Vesicare solifenacin - and yet it hasn't abated in 3 months since F 40 5 months

 1  overactive bladder irregular heart rhythm, blurred vision, dry eyes, dry mouth On the 4th day of taking this drug, I experienced extremely irregular heart rhythm my doctor said was from vesicare; but I do also have autonomic instability. I got blurred vision on day 1, which I still have 3 days after stopping the medication. I also got very dry eyes and dry mouth. My doctor took me off the medicine for these reasons. However, it did dramatically help frequency and urgency. I wish it would have worked for me; but I am now trying something else. F 46 4 days

 1  Over active bladder Dry mouth. Blurred vision, foggy brain, feeling sick and cold like symptoms. I had to stop this medication as it dried my mouth out that much it left sores all in my mouth and my tongue swoll up. Felt depressed and the foggy brain was awful. Confusion and problems with my memory as well as head aches. I wish the doctor had of explained these side effects before hand. Haven't took a tablet in 4 days and I feel loads better already and my mouth has cleared up and appetite slowly returning. If you are like me and get side affects from tables don't take these. F 31 3 weeks

VESICARE  (SOLIFENACIN SUCCINATE):  Solifenacin is used to treat an overactive bladder. By relaxing the muscles in the bladder, solifenacin improves your ability to control your urination. It helps to reduce leaking of urine, feelings of needing to urinate right away, and frequent trips to the bathroom. This medication belongs to the class of drugs known as antispasmodics.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
