  • Effectiveness
    Major (for bladder problems)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (sedation)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I reduced the dosage from 4mg to 2mg. I had initially started on one mg. Dr reccommended I go up from 2 to 4, but the 4 lowered my blood pressure and I ended up feeling sedated. 2mg w at bed time works great at reducing number of times I get up in the night to urinate and eliminates accidents.
Side effects: sedation

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for bladder problems)
  • Side effects
    Moderate
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 4 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The increased dosage did reduce the frequency of using the bathroom at night to one or none from 2 to 4. It can lower your blood pressure, and make you feel light headed and lowers energy. Take early enough in evening so to reduce the tired feeling the next day.
Side effects: sedation
