Discussions that mention detrol

Cancer: Bladder board


For the past month or so I've been feeling the need to urinate quite frequently, sometimes not too long after going to bathroom. In these instances, when I end up going to the bathroom again, I urinate very little. Somedays it seems to be worse than other days.

Not knowing what was up, I went to my doctor, after explaining my symptoms, she said that I was most likley experiencing bladder spasms and told me to try cutting out caffine from my diet for a couple of weeks to see if the symptoms went away. After eliminating the caffine yet having no results, I returned to see my doctor and she prescibed Detrol LA.

It has now been a week and it doesn't seem like the Detrol is working. Does anyone know if it take longer for the Detrol to yeild results?

I've read a lot of posts on similar problems, but mine seems different because I do not have any pain nor is my condition so bad that I suffer from incontinence, night bed-wetting or even the need to urinate 15 plus times a day.

I do not have a UTI, but the feeling that I have is similar to when I've had UTIs in the past (feeling like you have to urinate constantly- minus any burning or pain).

Any help would be appreciated.

By the way, I am 25 year-old female.

------------------
I had the same symptoms on and off this past year. I feeling in my urethra that something is wrong. After urinating, I would feel it. And nothing was left. Two months ago I passed blood after having that feeling, but much worse. They said it was most likely a kidney stone. I don't know if that's why I had the weird feeling all along. I never had a UTI, was tested a few times and have a home kit.

I went for a cat scan and they found a kidney stone 2 months ago. Maybe the blood was from that stone or maybe I passed a different one, I'll never know. They also gave me Detrol at the beginning which I never took. I didn't want a treatment, I wanted a diagnosis. Maybe you should see if you can get an or cat scan if it persists. Let us know!
