Side Effects of Fesoterodine

Common Side Effects

Fesoterodine has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occur in a group of people taking the drug are documented and are then compared to side effects that occur in another group of people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" with no active ingredients). This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group taking the placebo.
In these studies, the most common side effects of fesoterodine included:
Other common side effects, occurring in 1 to 2 percent of people, included (but were not limited to):
  • Nausea
  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Painful urination
  • Cough
  • Fluid retention, especially in the hands or feet
  • Back pain
  • Insomnia.

Final Thoughts on Fesoterodine Side Effects

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While the issue may not be due to a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
