Vesicare how long does it take to work

Common Questions and Answers about Vesicare how long does it take to work


Avatar m tn It's to the point where I am working remote from home pretty much everyday now and resting in between tasks. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas how long this will last? Anything I can try to help rebuild my immune system and get over this? I have cut out all alcohol, sodas, etc and trying to eat as best as I can with little to no appetite. Thanks in advance!
790669 tn?1465192699 So I finally got my internet back. Really bad lightening storm, phone lines under ground had to be replaced. Found out the ethernet port to my dsl box was fried. Got my new dsl box yesterday, hooked it all up and still the same thing. :S SO I grabbed the laptop and it worked fine and now it's also the ethernet port on my desk top, ugh!! lol So I've seen a 2nd urologists and he definitely comfirmed my Interstitual Cystitis..he was it was "moderate" stage.
Avatar f tn GG - ISC (intermittent self catherization) is a very simple technique, and once you learn how to use it effectively it can make venturing out a bit more secure feeling. Talk to your doctor - its very common for MS patients to need this aid.
Avatar f tn As I understand it, the bladder has to contract for us to urinate. The drugs we take - I am on Sanctura for my bladder - relax that bladder muscle. My neurogenic bladder is quite content to let the drug be in charge, much like other drugs such as baclofen might work for our limbs and other muscles. Yes, this can be a life hindering problem and you can reclaim your life if you can get the bladder under control. It's worth the dry mouth to be able to go 3 hours or longer between pit stops.
Avatar m tn because you are in a VERY long and strong could take SEVERAL days of taking the pyridium for it to really kick I would keep taking it for a week...just see what happens...
147426 tn?1317269232 Now, I always hurt - ache - and I take nothing for granted - like feeling okay. It feels like I always need to release the floodgates, but often nothing is there. My next voyage out was with Vesicare and this did more to dull the waves of angry pain and seemed to delay the "puddling" somewhat more. So she prescribed Vesicare - only to be told by my insurance that I must fail trials of Detrol LA and Oxybutinin ER first. Okay, now we are 6 weeks into the drug trials.
147426 tn?1317269232 Certainly there was no indication that Avonex was having an effect, because that is not how it works - It prevents worsening. It is hard to measure something you have prevented, no? But, a few people on the forum had said that they actually felt better. Could this really be true? I have felt bad for so long, that I no longer remember how I felt when 60-70 hour work weeks were normal and I didn't feel tired all the time.

Avatar f tn Just read your post, and I would also agree about the Mirolax, it does work. Last time I had to do a colonoscopy, that had me drink it with Gatorade, I already dislike Gatorade, and after drinking so much of it with Mirolax, I can honestly say, I haven't changed my mind, but the Mirolax did the job. If it doesn't do the job for you, a suggestion my Doctor's nurse gave me, when I was having constipation issues was what she termed a "brown cow".
Avatar f tn My symptoms did not improve and I began on Vesicare, which did not help, and now I am on Detrol LA. This does not seem to be helping either. I am continuing to urinate 20-30 times a day. Sitting also makes it worse. Please help. I cannot continue to live like this. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/912656'>Urinary Urgency/Frequency/Incontinence</a>.
405614 tn?1329147714 I have a week coming up where I can try it and see how it goes. I would love to be one of the ones it works for! So it was Rena that had the great success with it, ah ha. And Wobbly, too, once you got past the first adjustment. I'll make sure I'm well-stocked with supplies at home while I try adjusting to a new med if there are any negative side-effects for me. Provigil was such a wonder to me when I first tried it; I felt more alert and clear than I had in a long time.
1373769 tn?1278607210 They are a bit graphic, but they tell the truth. The first is the explanation of how our bladders are supposed to work and some of the things that can go wrong.
Avatar f tn My GI guy told me that if we have diahheria ( sp) , or constiptation, that the fiber bulks up the excess water,, or in the other case helps hold on to water, and it will take about 3 weeks for it to work itself out. He said that it was odd to be old that when you have the RUNS, be told to take extra fibre, but he swears that it works. So, far, evern with everything that I take, I still suffer sometimes from the constipation, and that is when I take the bisaydl sodium (sp) again, sorry....
3204881 tn?1345503526 He doesn't seem to concerned with anything at this point but I will bring it up with him tomorrow. In regards to Copaxone, how does it work for you? How long did it take for it to start working for you? How do you fare with the awesome burning at the injection site? You are the first person that I have talked with that has taken the drug so any imput you have would be great.

1176711 tn?1265341941 They have really made a difference and it stimulates me and shortens the time it does take to reach orgasm. You can buy it at your local drug store or if you prefer to, you can purchase it online. It does help me. I hope this helps...
Avatar dr m tn dx = demylinating disease/white brain matter disease detrol didn't work so the urologist changed me to vesicare. That seem to be helping. Without the meds I am up every two or three hours without much output.
Avatar n tn I forgot to mention his white count blood work has been consistently low. How long does it take to get results of a Lyme Disease Blood Test? Son took on 2 weeks ago along with many others and has not gotten any results as of yet. I am beginning to understand this will be a journey getting a diagnosis but something in my mind and heart believes it is Lyme Disease.
1225331 tn?1333369369 I would talk to your neurologist about your symptoms, and about how they're getting worse, not better. Neurological damage does take a long time to heal, so it's hard to tell at first whether you're getting better. But if you're having new symptoms, or worsening ones, then CIS is unlikely. If you have questions, take a look at our Health Pages (upper right hand corner) - there's a lot of info on MS, PPMS, and CIS.
667078 tn?1316004535 I'm hoping it will all be enough to push her to diagnose me, but I'm still not sure if she is ballsy enough to do so. I think my clinical part with my symptoms is my strongest's those dang MRI results with the non specific lesions that stop the diagnosis in it's tracks. I need a full work up of new MRIs of the brain and spine (it's been more than a year for both), so I'm not sure if things have changed or not. To all my forum family..
Avatar f tn hello all, YES methadone does cause weight gain...ALOT of weight for some people.It seems to cause it more in women than men. I am on the methadone clinic now, and have been for a few years!! Not my plan of course, but if you use for a long time, it will obviously take a long time to feel "normal" again (no it does not cause you to feel "buzzed,@the clinic it is liquid and time-released) as well as get your sh-t together.Anyway, for me it took a while to gain alot of weight.
1323278 tn?1298126088 These ladies seem very capable to help you with the details. It should be good to have a ready-made contact if you are able to work this out. Did I understand correctly that you are in the US on a VISA now? Mind if I ask where your original hat stand is located?
Avatar f tn How long ago did all this happen? It can take up to two years for recovery. I will read some and see what I can find out.
Avatar n tn Baby powder is a good idea. make sure it is cornstarch based. carry a water proof pouch and extra underwear and change throgh the day. carry a travel size bottle of baby powder.
Avatar n tn Mine makes me feel like I have to pee all the time and when I do I get a pain in my side/back then when I am done it usually goes away. I am usual aware of the stents pressence and I hope to get rid of it someday. I hope you have success with your clinical trial. I am on doxil now it is so far not so bad. Better then taxol/carbo. But I am not sure if it is working yet. Do you know what drug you are taking on clinical trial? I will pray for you!!
147426 tn?1317269232 2 Years ago I ruptured all the ligaments in my left ankle (by tripping over a forklift truck as one does!!) I could not believe how long it took to heal. I was in plaster for 5 weeks and then had physio for what felt like months. I really empathise with you and hope that your recovery is not prolonged.
198419 tn?1360245956 or in line at a store paying my bill then unable to move away to take my cart out. I just had to stand and wait for it to pass... Sure never heard anyone with MS describe this.....
Avatar n tn I don't have any pain either just pressure and a need to go feeling, worse when i sit down or lay down on my side. There is no pain,no leaking and no feeling i won't make it to the bathroom. I have noticed a little less intense feelings without drinking coffee. I'm trying to narrow down what might irritate my bladder and cause some of this. My Dr said he would send me to a Urologist but they are expensive without insurance and IC can't always be seen in a scope unless it's severe or ulcered.
Avatar m tn I have been on almost every antibiotic, it seems to help at first, but the pain has now started to come back. I don't think the antibiotics help at all. I think they make you baby yourself, but the injury returns the second you start to become normally active again. At least that is what happens in my case. Its either a sports hernia or the real deal. It seems to come in episodes directly corresponding to heavy activity of any sort.
