DARIFENACIN EXTENDED-RELEASE - ORAL

(dar-e-fen-A-sin)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Enablex

USES: This medication is used to treat an overactive bladder. By relaxing the muscles in the bladder, darifenacin improves your ability to control your urination. It helps to reduce leaking of urine, feelings of needing to urinate right away, and frequent trips to the bathroom. This medication belongs to the class of drugs known as antispasmodics.

HOW TO USE: Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using darifenacin and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions regarding the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth, with or without food, usually once a day, or as directed by your doctor. Swallow this medication with a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters).

Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing.

Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use it at the same time each day. Dosage is based on your medical condition (especially liver disease), response to therapy, and use of certain interacting medicines. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Do not increase your dose or take this medication more often without your doctor's approval. Your condition will not improve any faster and the risk of serious side effects may be increased.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
