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

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once a day. Take it with a full glass of liquid. Swallow this medication whole because the powder in the tablet has a strong bitter taste.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.
