When and How to Take This Medication

General considerations for when and how to take tolterodine include the following:
  • The medicine comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth twice daily.
  • You can take tolterodine with or without food. If the drug bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Tolterodine should be taken at the same times each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Tolterodine will not work if you stop taking it.

Dosage Information

The dose of tolterodine your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • How you respond to tolterodine
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

What If I Take an Overdose of Tolterodine?
