Indications & Dosage of Ditropan
Ditropan is used in the treatment of muscle spasms in the urinary tract and the bladder. It is prescribed by a doctor to provide relief to patients suffering from symptoms of bladder instability or reflex neurogenic bladder. The drug is highly effective for people who experience symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, urine leakage, dysuria, and increased night urination. Ditropan has a direct antispasmodic effect on smooth muscles of the bladder and urinary tract and slows down the muscarinic action of acetylcholine on the muscles.
You must follow the specific instructions of your doctor regarding the dosage. The recommended dosage of Ditropan for an adult is 1 pill taken thrice daily for a period of 2 years. It is advisable not to take the medication in larger amounts or take it for a longer duration than prescribed by your doctor. It is best to follow the directions as mentioned on the prescription label.
You can take Ditropan with or without food. Taking it with a full glass of water helps it work effectively to relax the smooth muscles of the bladder. It is recommended that you take the pill at the same time every day.
