I stopped urinating altogether so I had to stop taking this drug. I only took it for 2 days. I have urge Incontinence and I don't empty my bladder all of the way. So the packaging did not recommend I take it but I was desperate to try something because I battle with this all night and day. I need something that is a lot milder not sure if there is a product out there for me.

This med worked but I was forced to quit taking this medicine after 10 days. I quit 3 weeks ago and am still severely constipated. This is more than simple constipation. My appetite is gone and can eat very little. I have taken triple daily amounts of several laxatives for the past two weeks with no relief.
