How Does Trospium XR Work?

Trospium XR is known as an antimuscarinic or anticholinergic medication. This type of medication is used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including an overactive bladder. Trospium XR works for bladder problems by blocking specific receptors (called muscarinic receptors) in the bladder, which helps to relax the muscles of the bladder. Because an overactive bladder is often due to bladder muscle contractions that are too frequent and uncontrollable, trospium XR can help relieve many of the symptoms of an overactive bladder.

Trospium XR Effects

Studies have shown trospium XR can help relieve many of the symptoms of an overactive bladder. In clinical studies, people who took trospium XR significantly reduced the frequency of bladder accidents. Also, people who took trospium XR needed to urinate less frequently and were able to pass more urine each time they used the bathroom (the frequent muscle contractions of an overactive bladder usually prevent the bladder from holding a normal amount of urine). For most people, trospium XR started to work within the first week of use.
