Without Detrol, I wake up at least 6-7 times during the night. With Detrol, I may get up twice. The only drawback is that there is no generic and insurance either does not pay for it or the co-pay is high.

I have been taking detrol 2mg. for my oab for many years now but it hasn't helped much I have to wear a incontinence pad 24-7 and when I cough or sneeze or stand from a sitting or laying position I leak urine sometimes to the point my underware and pants are soaked.

I experienced an OAB as a result of my MS. I was prescribed Detrol LA one year ago due to frequent urination, especially at night. The medicine worked for the first three months, then not at all. I am VERY disappointed!

I got better benefits.

Comment from: tootsjojo, 45-54 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: August 03

When I first started it, it gave me Vertigo, but controlled the urination. Now, the Vertigo has stopped, and the affect of the Detrol has stopped the OAB is the same, if not worse than it was.
