Q. When should Solifenacin be taken?
Solifenacin should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Generally, it is recommended that the medicine should be taken once daily, preferably at the same time. It can be taken with or without food.
Q. Does Solifenacin cause dementia?

Q. What is overactive bladder?
Overactive bladder is a condition where the nerve signals coming from the brain directs your bladder to empty even when it is not full.
