    I have been taking this medication for 3 months, and it hasn't worked for me. I tried Detrol LA first, and that didn't work either. I was told to take 3 pills per day now of the Ditropan to see if that works. I will post results in a few months.

    I have been taking this medication for over 10 years with great success.
