 3  Interstitial Cystitis Dizziness, unable to focus, just generally feeling weird This is an update to my previous review (2010 I think?). I am out of remission with my IC again, and I'm finding almost all the drugs I took for it last time around are reacting a little differently this time for some reason. Toviaz still works well, though now it can make me REALLY dizzy and spacey, which I don't remember happening last time at all. F 39

 1  overactive bladder Hallucinations, memory loss, difficulties with situational awareness. Dementia-like symptoms. Toviaz was a disaster for my mother. Her urologist started her out at 4 mg, which had little effect, so he increased the dose to 8 mg. At this dose, Mom experienced hallucinations, memory loss, and with what I would call difficulties with situational awareness. (For example, she and my dad were on vacation and she asked him one evening what time he had to milk the cows the next day. Dad grew up on a farm, but Mom and Dad are retired and Dad hasn't lived on a farm since he was a boy.) Mom also had difficulty with mechanical things, such as operating the remote, microwave, car locks, etc. Our family doctor thought she had some sort of rapid-onset dementia. We followed up with her neurologist, fearing the worst, and he asked a raft of questions and did a number of tests. Tests were all negative, but there had been one recent change in meds: Toviaz. "I don't want you on Toviaz!" the neurologist exclaimed. Mom discontinued the Toviaz in September and was back to normal by the end of November. F 73 4 months

 3  overactive bladder The med worked for overactive bladder, but also constricted the urethra, resulting in decreased rate of urinary discharge and requiring much more time. With a cytoscopy or cath, the urethra opens up, and discharge rate is normal again. F 51 2 years

 4  Bladder - IC My urologist recommended I try this over Enabelex, and I'm so glad I did. It does have much fewer side effects than Enablex. Doesn't dry me out as much all over, but really keeps me from having to get up to pee as much at night (the main reason I take it). Only downside is there is no generic. F 35 4 months

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)
