    I took one dose about 6pm and by midnight I thought I would have to go to the ER...as I had a burning desire to urinate but couldn't...finally, after standing over the toilet for about 10 minutes I began to slowly urinate...for the next 4-5 hours I had to release myself about every 10-15 minutes....and it took a very long time each and every time...I will never again take this Medication...

    I used it one time. I took 1/4 of the dose prescribed by my Doctor and it stopped my kidneys from working for 16 hours. Too scary for me. I do not want to harm my kidneys.

    I have been taking Detrol for about 6 months. Within a week I was back to normal. It is a tier 2 prescription but worth the $. BTW. I had to suggest it to my doctor.

    Comment:
    I continue to urinate. I sometimes urinate 10-15 times (at least) per day. Then, the urge will cease for a while. I am 57 y-o woman. I have not been able to entirely stop black tea and sweeteners but even when I do stop, it continues. Have also been making some other dietary changes. The Detrol may work a little...also find I crash when it wears off and feel weepy.
