Each day, millions of women suffer form complications associated with urinary incontinence, urinary frequency and even urinary urgency. For many women, finding ways in which to control this embarrassing urological complication can be quite challenging. For some women, the use of FDA approved drug, Enablex, has provided the gateway to better control over the urinary complications.
Enablex, manufactured and distributed by Novartis Pharmaceuticals, lends its success to the treatment of urinary complications in both men and women, by relaxing an overactive bladder. By reducing the spasms of an overactive bladder, women, especially, will realize an decreased incidence of urgency, urinary frequency and even urinary incontinence complications.
Dosing of Enablex is quite simple with most patients requiring 7.5 milligram tablets while those with urinary incontinence requiring 15 milligram tablets. The dosing recommendation will vary depending on your specific urological complications. The great advantage of Enablex is the requirement of only one tablet per day, with or without food.
As with any FDA approved prescription drug, the use of Enablex, in treating urological complications in women, does not come without side effects. Because of the muscle alteration, side effects of Enablex might include constipation as the bowel is also relaxed and not producing regular, and consistent, movement. Many women also complain of excessively dry mouth, changes to vision and even a feeling of warmth in the body with not evidence of sweating. While these side effects are common, if they become more severe, consultation with a healthcare professional is recommended.
For women who are pregnant, Enablex is not indicated in the treatment of urological complications and should also be avoided in women who are breastfeeding as Enablex will pass through breast milk. Additionally, for those individuals who suffer from liver disorders, complications involving vision disorders and complications associated with the gastrointestinal system, including colon or bowel issues, should also avoid using Enablex.
Adverse pharmaceutical reactions are seen in those individuals who are taking prescription drugs for other health conditions such as depression, fungal infections, heart palpitations, antibiotics and even anti-virals. For this reason, be sure the urologist is aware of all prescription drugs you may be using.
As a woman who is experiencing complications associated with urinary frequency, urinary urgency and even urinary incontinence, it is important to seek out the attention of a urologist immediately as these complications could be the first signs of a more life altering condition. When discussing treatment options with a healthcare professional, discuss the use of Enablex as part of the prescription drug program.
