Decrease symptoms: This medication is used to treat certain bladder/urinary tract symptoms. Flavoxate is a smooth-muscle relaxant. It works by relaxing the muscles in the bladder. Flavoxate helps to reduce leaking of urine, feelings of needing to urinate right away, frequent trips to the bathroom, and bladder pain. This medication does not treat the cause of your bladder symptoms (e.g., urinary tract infections). ...Read more
My wife thinks she has a UTI. She has taken Urispas and Cystemme for 3 days but is still suffering...
Not effective: These are not at all effective against UTI. They may help reduce symptoms, but cannot cure any kind of infection. She needs an antibiotic. She should see a doctor or clinic, if available (understanding that this can be a challenge for many people in your country) for proper diagnosis and treatment. Or if necessary, ask a pharmacist for an antibiotic like sulfa-trimethoprim or ciprofloxacin. ...Read more

Taking flavoxate for bladder spasms. This is 2 days. Should i b able to tell a difference by now? Is it normal for spasms to come n go while on Meds?
If you have: overactive bladder, Flavoxate is indicated to help reduce the overactivity by smoothing/calming the "spasms" noted to cause the frequent urination. Even though it works at the muscle fiber level, you should not be able to tell that there is any "spasm". 2 day of medication should start to give some positive change, but I would give it a week solid before you decide whether the medication works. ...Read more
Did Flavoxate(200 mg) taken 3 time a day for week can cause chronic urinary retention in future? Thank You
Here are some...: Flavoxate suppresses bladder muscle contaractability. In general, it is good idea to be checked out to see what the potential underlying causes for irritative voiding symptoms may be - so making sure of no bladder outlet obstruction by poor sphincter relaxation, stone, or stricture along the urethra; flavoxate is not good for these conditions. So, be evaluated timely... ...Read more
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
