    I only have one kidney on the right side. It has a kidney stone in it that has not moved in over 6 years. My last visit to my doctor was 2 months ago. That is when he started me on Detrol La. Since then I get off and on bad pain over the right kidney area. Can this be due to the Detrol. The pain even hurts if I touch the area where the pain is. There is no problem urinating.

    A effective medication. I have be on it for several years. I wish that it wasn't so expensive, as I am on a fixed income (senior).

    Does not solve the problem - still leaking and still wet a diaper after rising in a.m. Some of symptoms actually worse.

    Everyone should be taking fiber supplements while taking Detral La. This medication can cause chronic constipation. Drink plenty of water. Detral La completely ruined my life.

    This has worked great for my little girl, she was unable to even go to school when her symptoms were at their worst. She is now leading a normal life. However, she has been on it for 6 months now and her side effects are weight gain, sore legs especially at night and I have noticed bruising, not sure if this is related. Going to try and reduce the dosage and see what happens.
