Bladder Medication Update

I have now been taking detrusitol for about 4 months now, and I thought time for a brief update.

I have found that my urgency has continued to be a much smaller issue than it was, and by and large I haven't had any accidents since then.

Also, I have spotted that my bowel urgency has also decreased similarly over the same time. A look at the detrusitol/tolterodine leaflet suggests that it is only for bladder issues. However, the common (less than 1 in 10) side effects include both diarrhoea and constipation so I may have found some unintended benefits here too.

In summary, I'm pleased that this issue is much more under control than it was before.
