Is detrol (tolterodine) used for bladder control?

One of many. Detrol (tolterodine) is used as a bladder muscle relaxant, most frequently to control an overactive bladder. It helps to functionally increase bladder capacity & suppress involuntary bladder contractions &/or urge to urinate. Does not cross the blood brain barrier so that is a good replacement for oxybutinin which is usually more effective bur can cause blurred vision & other central nervous system effects. Read more...

Not a good idea. They are the same class of medicine (antocholinergic) and both work in pretty much the same way, by reducing spasm of the muscle that contracts to push urine out of the bladder. Taken in excess they can actually cause incontenence by paralysis of that muscle (overflow incontenence). If the meds are not working you should see a urologist. You can have systemic side effects with too much meds. Read more...
