FAQs

Q. How long does it take for Dezrol La to show its effect?

Your symptoms may start improving within 1 week of starting Dezrol La. Maximum benefits may be seen after 5-8 weeks of treatment. To maintain this improvement, your doctor may prescribe this medicine to you for a long term of up to 24 months.

Q. What class of drug is Dezrol La? Is it a diuretic?

Dezrol La belongs to a class of medicines known as muscarinic receptor blockers. Dezrol La is not a diuretic, it is a urinary antispasmodic. This means that it relaxes the urinary bladder, decreasing spasm of the bladder wall. This further provides better control upon the release of urine and also increases storage volume of the bladder.

Q. Can I just stop taking Dezrol La?

Dezrol La does not cure your condition but helps to control the symptoms of overactive bladder. Do not stop taking this medicine even if you feel better. Your doctor will reassess your condition at regular intervals, like 6 months, to understand the duration for which you need to take Dezrol La.

Q. Can I crush the tablets of Dezrol La and then take it?

No, do not crush or chew the tablets. Swallow the whole tablet with a glass of water. You can take it with or without food. Take it exactly as directed by your doctor.

Q. Can Dezrol La be used in children?

When studied in children, Dezrol La did not relieve the symptoms of overactive bladder. Therefore, its use in children is not recommended.

Q. Who should avoid taking Dezrol La?

Patients who have urinary retention (unable to pass urine), have delayed emptying of stomach or blocked intestinal tract (toxic megacolon, ulcerative colitis, pyloric stenosis) or uncontrolled high pressure in the eyes (narrow-angle glaucoma). It should also be avoided by patients who have any muscle disease which causes drooping eyelids, double vision, difficulty in speaking and swallowing, and sometimes muscle weakness in the arms or legs (myasthenia gravis). Patients who are hypersensitive to Tolterodine should avoid it as well.

Q. I am having constipation because of which I want to discontinue Dezrol La. Will I have any harmful effects?

No, discontinuing Dezrol La will not have any harmful effects, but the symptoms of overactive bladder may return. Talk to your doctor regarding constipation and you can stop the medicine if advised by the doctor.

Q. Does Dezrol La cause dementia?

It is unclear whether Dezrol La can cause dementia or not. However, according to some reports, when people with dementia were given Dezrol La, their symptoms (confusion, disorientation and delusion) became worse.
