Detrol is a urinary antispasmodic pill made up of a drug called tolterodine. We carry the generic alternative (tolterodine) in 1mg and we carry the brand name choice (Detrol) in 1mg and 2mg!
Detrol is used to treat bladders that are overactive and have symptoms of urinary frequency (having to urinate often), urgency (having to urinate badly as soon as the urge begins), and incontinence (lack of control of urination). Detrol (tolterodine) works to solve this by relaxing the muscles in the bladder and reducing spasms.
Make sure to follow directions given to you by your doctor, they can usually be found on your prescription label if you forget. You can also call your doctor or health care professional if you cannot remember.
This medication must be taken by mouth, you can take it with or without food, or as directed by your doctor.

Detrol must be used regularly in order to achieve the full benefit. Ensure you don’t miss a dose by taking this medication at the same time every day.
