When and How to Take Darifenacin

General considerations for when and how to take darifenacin include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken just once a day.
     
  • You can take darifenacin with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • Darifenacin should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
     
  • Because darifenacin is an extended-release medication, it should be swallowed whole with liquids. Do not break, chew, or crush the tablets.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Darifenacin will not work if you stop taking it.
