    After pelvic surgery over 3 months ago to correct a prolapsed bladder, I am unable to urinate However, when I take the Bethanechol, I can. Without it, I have to use self-catheterization, which is not my favorite thing to do.

    Medication caused severe salivation, drop in blood pressure, dehydration, I was cold, but perspiring, eventually caused me to pass out. Fortunately, I was in the hospital at the time or I would have died.

    BEING USED TO URGE BLADDER TO ENCOURAGE EMPTYING BLADDER. DOES NOT SEEM TO DO THE JOB

    Medication has been effective and easy to use. I seem to have a problem being more emotional than usual and wonder if it contains a hormone. I have been taking it for 2 months and have fewer problems but it's hard to tell if my bladder is emptying well. Just going less often and more comfortable.
