    Default Trospium chloride for bladder??

    Finally went to a new urologist. Really liked her.
    She changed my med from the oxybutinin which I have taken for 25 years with perfect success. So, I am scheduled for tests for the next 2weeks and she changed the med to Trospium chloride. If that does not work we will try another. If that does not work we will try Botox.

    The tests will not be comfortable. She said I can continue to take the oxybutinin for a week while also taking the new med. maybe she said that I needed to get a certain amount of the new med in my system for it to work. What a pain. Literally and figuratively! I hate it when a med you have taken for years stops working.

    I was wondering until the sentence, why you were changing meds. I hope you can find something that will work just as well. What a disease. Is there any body function that is never affected? It's not fair.

    Wouldn't it be nice if the new one works as well and for as long as the old one?

    Botox is supposed to be good and has really helped many. It is the going in for the shots that would be it's downfall.

    I do the Botox shots. They're not an issue at all. It's done as an outpatient. They put you to sleep, do the shots, send you home. It takes longer to do the set up --clean, prep, take vitals, do anesthesia, then recovery -- make sure you're fully awake -- than the actual procedure. I'm in in the morning, home in time for lunch. I've had it done three times now, with the only side effect is a bit of blood in the urine the next day. I'm scheduled for round four in September (done twice/year).

    Thanks...I knew you had success with Botox.
    When you go for the shots do they make you bring someone to drive you home or can you just go on your own. I am thinking about colonoscopies when they hold you until a ride comes for you.

    I go back to urologist tomorrow and still have the same question. Does the outpatient facility where you do Botox force you to have a driver to take you home? When I had a colonoscopy that was a huge irritation for me.

    Sounds standard for any procedure with anesthesia, no?

    I would think so, since Cat has to be put to sleep. However, I am sure she will be along to let you know.

    If you have "conscious sedation" like midazolam (Versed) you must have a ride home.
