Side Effects of Fesoterodine

Urinary tract infection, dry mouth, and constipation are some of the most commonly reported side effects of fesoterodine. Generally, side effects of the medication are mild and, in most cases, do not require medical attention. However, some side effects (while occurring infrequently) are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider, including severe constipation, difficulty passing urine, or confusion.

An Introduction to Fesoterodine Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with fesoterodine fumarate (Toviaz™); however, not everyone who takes the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
