Trospium XR for Overactive Bladder

Trospium XR (Sanctura®) is a prescription drug approved to treat symptoms of an overactive bladder, such as:
 
  • Frequent urination (usually defined as needing to go more than eight times in a day)
  • Leaking accidents (known as urinary incontinence or urge incontinence)
  • Sudden, frequent urges to urinate.
  •  
This medication comes in the form of a capsule that is taken once a day. In clinical studies, trospium XR started to work within the first week of use for most people. These studies show that people who took trospium XR significantly reduced the frequency of bladder accidents. Also, people who took the medication needed to urinate less frequently and were able to pass more urine each time they used the bathroom.
