Tolterodine ER

When and How to Take Tolterodine ER

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