Tolterodine Drug Information

Medication Information: Tolterodine is prescribed for people who have difficulty controlling urination. These problems include frequent urination and nocturia. Frequent urination occurs when you need to empty your bladder suddenly and immediately. These problems can have different causes. In some people, it is due to weakening of the pelvic muscles, and in others it is due to diseases that cause the muscles around the bladder to be faster than normal.

Tolterodine helps reduce urinary disorders by reducing muscle contraction around the bladder and increasing bladder volume. This helps the urine to flow more easily. Tolterodine is also used to reduce bladder hyperactivity in children over 5 years of age under the supervision of a specialist.
