FAQs

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

Your symptoms may start improving within 1 week of starting Tolstat. 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 Tolstat? Is it a diuretic?

Tolstat belongs to a class of medicines known as muscarinic receptor blockers. Tolstat 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 Tolstat?

Tolstat 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 Tolstat.

Q. Can I crush the tablets of Tolstat 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 Tolstat be used in children?

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

Q. Who should avoid taking Tolstat?

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 Tolstat. Will I have any harmful effects?

No, discontinuing Tolstat 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 Tolstat cause dementia?

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