Trospium is prescribed for the treatment of overactive bladder, a condition characterized by involuntary contractions of the bladder muscles, leading to frequent urination, an urgent need to urinate, and difficulty controlling urination.

Classified as an antimuscarinic medication, trospium operates by inducing relaxation in the bladder muscles, thereby mitigating the occurrences of urgent, frequent, or uncontrolled urination.

Uses and Dosage

Administer this medication orally on an empty stomach, typically at least 1 hour before a meal, as instructed by your doctor, usually once daily. The prescribed dosage is determined by your medical condition and response to the treatment.

Consume the capsule whole; avoid crushing or chewing it. Additionally, refrain from consuming alcohol or any product containing alcohol for 2 hours before and after taking this medication. Alcohol ingestion can compromise the drug’s extended action and may heighten potential side effects.

If swallowing the capsule poses difficulties, you have the option to open it and place the beads in a small amount of water or directly onto the tongue. Do not crush or chew the beads, as this could lead to a rapid release of the drug, potentially increasing side effects. Swallow all the beads promptly.

Consistency is key for optimal results; take this medication regularly at the same time each day to derive the maximum benefit.

Inform your doctor if there is no improvement in your condition or if it worsens.

What’s the difference between the immediate-release and the extended-release version of Sanctura?

The extended-release version lasts longer in your body than the immediate-release version (by about 15 hours), so you only need to take it once a day. Since the immediate-release version doesn’t last as long, you have to take it twice a day.

Should I take the extended-release version of Sanctura in the morning?

Your body absorbs and breaks down some medications differently during the daytime rather than during the nighttime while you’re sleeping. Sanctura works best if you take it in the morning, because there’s more of this medication in your body while you’re awake.
