Vesicare substitute

Common Questions and Answers about Vesicare substitute


Avatar n tn ” I started treatment with a urologist who treated it as a prostate problem. None of the medication such as Flomax, Vesicare and Oxbutynin had much effect. I also did various techniques to strengthen my pelvic muscles including electronic stimulation, but they had no effect. Eventually the urologist performed a Transurethral needle ablation (TUNA): This improved my urine flow and ease of urination, however it did nothing for the nighttime problem.
Avatar n tn I take Immodium when I have to. I take Vesicare for the bladder symptoms. Is it unusual for a person to have both problems? I have had both of these since I was a child. I wonder if I have been misdiagnosed. I have a great niece who had been misdiagnosed with IBS, but she has Crohn's disease. I had a colonoscopy about 5 years ago, but haven't had an upper GI.
Avatar n tn My obgyn blew it off and so did my GP until I pressed the issue. He gave me no tests but prescribed Vesicare. He told me before going to urologists and doing a bunch of tests to try this first. I haven't taken the meds as I have a couple of concerns. Could frequent urination be a sign of something seriously wrong health wise? My Dad has parkinsons and I know this is one of the symptoms of this. On a funny note he never gives me grief when I need to find a bathroom as he can relate.
1522652 tn?1291241954 Sorry, I didn't read the whole thing yet..endo appt in an hour. (I promise to read it when I get back). I ~was~ diagnosed with I.C. (interstitial cystitus), constant urination, constant thirst (which I didn't know was a part of thyroid..just always have something to drink at hand), pains (like UTI). I took Elmirion for a year, had a cystoscopy..found no sign of I.C., but did find a small infection. (we didn't know if it was the Elmirion working or not *sigh*).

I was diagnosed in April 2011 after seeing a doctor for numb fingers and Lhermittes. I also had a bad case of Guttate Psoriasis for the first time. My MRI showed the classic pattern of lesions for MS and I also have 3 c-spine lesions. I was shocked about my diagnosis because I suspected carpel tunnel all these years and manybe a pinched nerve.
