Enablex is an oral tablet made up of a urinary antispasmodics drug called darifenacin. We carry this medication in a generic alternative (darifenacin) and in the brand choice (Enablex) both available in 7.5mg and 15mg.
Enablex is prescribed to help treat a condition called overactive bladder. This is a condition in which one has to urinate often, urgently, and has little control over urination causing incontinence (leakage). A person can get overactive bladder from quite a few different ways, including having weak muscles, an infection or nerve damage, use of medications, alcohol or caffeine, and being overweight.
Darifenacin works by reducing the spasms of the bladder and urinary tract.
Always follow directions given to you by your doctor. Most prescription labels have the directions written on them for your convenience. Do not take more or less of a dose than directed to by your doctor.
This medication is to be taken with a full glass of water and can be taken with or without food. This tablet should not be crushed, chewed or broken open as it will be most effective swallowed whole.

If you are have untreated or uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma, a stomach disorder causing delayed emptying, or if you have trouble emptying your bladder, your doctor may not allow you to use Enablex as these conditions have had interactions with darifenacin before.
Enablex can cause you to lose perspiration and you may be more vulnerable to heat stroke; avoid becoming overheated or dehydrate.
Enablex can sometimes cause blurry vision; do not drive or do anything that requires you to be alert until you understand completely how this medication affects you.
If you have liver disease, ulcerative colitis, a blockage in your stomach or intestines, a muscle disorder such as myasthenia gravis or if you have very little urine or a weak stream of urine, your doctor may need to give you a special dose or special instructions and cautions to follow and be aware of.
