Vesicare how long to work

Common Questions and Answers about Vesicare how long to work


Avatar m tn By the time I hit the sack at night my lower back and side are hurting so bad I'm just about ready to go to the ER. Can this be caused by my spleen? I'm unsure what to do at this point. 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?
790669 tn?1465192699 She claimed she was in soo much pain..but how do you manage to get comfortable enough to sleep? Anyways, next day same thing.. dH went fishing..I was pissed he left her here at our house for me to pratically babysit. I left and went to my moms :). So I get back up here and she is putting on a show BIG time. She's shifting side to side in the recliner..I was furious..I said.."do you want to to got the ER?" She says.." I don't know waht I need to do..
Avatar f tn It's making it really hard to go out for too long. Please if anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I used to and still go to a lot of horse events that are in remote areas and I used to have to take a bucket and pee in my horse float out of sight as the lines to the loo were always too long and there was only ever one toilet. Vesicare has changed that for me, you take your bladder and toileting for granted but I had also had accidents.
Avatar m tn Hope something can give me some relief to this feeling of having to urinate 24/7. I did mention the long periods of masturbation to the urologist and he doesn't think its nerve damage, but he thinks it could have in some way contributed to me getting prostatitis.
147426 tn?1317269232 No amount of the techniques I learned in PT could close the breach. No matter how much protection I wore, nore how I tried to pre-empt the process by timing my visits to the BR, I lost it all every time. I now keep the mop and cleaner in my room at all times, own gads of pairs of underwear and have a more intimate relationship with my washer. I never eave the house without my overnight bag packed with two changes of clothes and innumerable pads. My URO-G is sympathetic.
Avatar f tn I've been to countless doctors done a cystoscopy, IVP, different ultrasounds and many other tests and medications but they can't seem to find the problem. If I were to go to the bathroom everytime I felt like urinating I would never leave the bathroom. even sex is difficult because while having sex i feel like I want to urinate and it doesn't feel good. can you please help me?
Avatar f tn I tried it for a week but was in pain with the craps, I did go but still with great difficulty! I am not sure what to do, I don't really want to go off the Vesicare as it has been a godsend for me, I would say almost life changing, it has made such a huge difference to my outings etc., not governed by your bladder and too my pain. I also suffer some numbness in my back passage area too, so that prob doesn't help.
147426 tn?1317269232 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. Since 1999 I have spent so much time in a recliner that I have become shaped like one. The people at Lay-Z-Boy know me by name (or possiby by shape). I had my first infusion July 8. Word on the street was that one generally began to see a Quality of Life improvement by the 4th or 5th infusion.
Avatar f tn Udkas, Recently I read on the PG 3350 label that it may take 3-4 days for this product to work, so be patient. You didn't get this way overnight and sometimes it takes just as long to get things moving again!
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>.
Avatar m tn I toughed it out, but I also am semi-retired, work from home and don't have to get up and go off to work every day. It took a long time. All my life, before being hyper, I'd slept like a baby...took a bomb to get me up. Because of that, I didn't have much in the way of "going back to sleep" skills. I think I'm finally learning them... You're still so new to meds and trying to get stabilized...maybe throwing another factor into the equation should wait a while?
Avatar f tn It would be ideal if you could find a urogynecologist that is an endometriosis specialist as well. I know how hard it is to keep going to the dr. and not finding the help you need, but keep going and don't give up until they figure out what is going on...It took me a long time but I am finally doing so much better! Let us know what they find and how you are doing!
359574 tn?1328364024 The cotton mouth from these drugs for our bladders is horrible - I drink water all day long and also chew gum to produce saliva. Too bad I can't do that at night while I sleep. The TN and all the dental problems sound painful - how have you coped? I hope you feel better, and better soon.
Avatar n tn So because I was still feeling the sensation I went to another Dr. and was prescribed Zithro again. Still didn't work. Then I was prescribed Cipro again and it still did not work. So 4 wonderful months have passed and I still have the same symptoms. One of the most disheartening parts of this story is my visit to the Urologist a few days ago. I was super nervous for some reason but still had hope that I would be fixed with another antibiotic.
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 Dear Dr., I posted back in June about the Burch and how long it is supposed to last. Just a brief explanation - I had a Dr.'s appt. yesterday and he is suggesting I may have MS. I go in for a brain MRI tomorrow and a neurology appt. as a follow up sometime in next month. For the last 4 weeks,I have been involuntarily leaking again (not stress), it just comes out. For example, I showered yesterday and 3 hours later, my pants were wet. This happens every day, all day.
Avatar n tn I have to go back to him on Sat for blood work. The last 2 days all i think about is how i am not urinating normally. And i am frustrated to go to the bathroom for almost nothing... i have no leaks or incontinance my muscles are strong. My GP suggested my next step is to go to a Urologist. After reading many posts- should i go to a Urologist first or should i go back to my Gyno (which i just saw last month) and i also had a pap, and vaginal sonogram all clean. Also...
405614 tn?1329147714 Hi, I didn't see your post until now! I have such a long list of medications that I have to trust professionals to figure out the interactions. The side effects are another story; some happen to some people, and others happen to others. I had every side effect to a blood pressure med I was taking for tremors, and i hadn't even read what they were. I just thought I was getting a lot sicker; this was before I got diagnosed. And Vesicare; it's working wonders for you (thank heavens!
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.
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 f tn About 18 months ago I began to notice urinary hesitancy, stopping and starting, etc. Long story short, I went to a urogynecologist, who did urodynamic testing and diagnosed big time bladder problems. I started self-cathing, but really only needed it once a day. This went on for 4 or 5 months, and then gradually I didn't need it. Things got back to normal, and I figured good, that lesion has pretty much healed (wherever it was). I was delighted.
Avatar f tn Take two times a day. Once my body responds to this, I am to quit the Dulcolax and see how it does. If all is well, quit the senne lax. He wants me just on the 3 tbsp cocktail, which I can tweak the amount if 2 tbsp of each item. So, hopefully this works for me. Just wanted to share another option.
1323278 tn?1298126088 ) Yes, that should probably work. Thanks, Jemm. I'm trying to contact doctors as well. Hopefully there will be a way to make it work. The job is really interesting, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed I can get to go.
1034549 tn?1255428213 I am supposed to go back to work Wednesday morning but don't know how when I can't stand and can barely walk. I feel like a failure and that I am letting my boss and co-workers down when they need me the most.
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.
Avatar f tn I am taking this vesicare to see if it helps with my bladder and the gabapentin. I too have had migraines where I have lost my eye sight all be it for only a few seconds. I am permanently confused!
667078 tn?1316004535 All 3 kids will be together at the same time. Wish us luck. I hope to return to work next week, half time at first. I have been off work since mid-April and the financial loss has been significant. I am nervous about returning as I was using a cane back then and now I must use a walker. This recovery has been much slower than past relapses. Very frustrating, but I will get along just fine. I am sure of that. Other wise, things are going ok. I love having my daughter here right now.
1176711 tn?1265341941 These were very good talks full of suggestions on how to work on this. If I can find them I will come back and post the addresses.
