What is Vesicare (Solifenacin Succinate) used for?
Vesicare is used to treat urinary retention and overactive bladder. The active ingredient, Solifenacin, works in the bladder muscles to prevent them from contracting uncontrollably. These contractions can cause frequent urination, urgent urination, and an inability to control it. Symptoms of neurogenic detrusor overactivity can occur in young children as well as adults who suffer from brain, spinal cord, or nerve problems. Vesicare (Solifenacin) treats this condition in children older than 2 years old. It is an Antimuscarinics medicine that can relax the muscles of the bladder.
