Description of Sanctura XR
Sanctura XR contains Trospium as its active ingredient. It belongs to the class of antispasmodics or antimuscarinic medicines. The drug is available in the form of oral extended release tablets.
Indications & Dosage of Sanctura XR
Your doctor will recommend you to buy Sanctura XR in order to treat bladder spasms and symptoms of urinary urgency, frequency and incontinence. It works by relieving bladder muscles, so that your ability to control urination is improved. In this way, the frequency and urgency of urination is decreased, and leakage of urine does not take place.
You will be advised to take one Sanctura XR 60mg capsule once a day, usually in the morning. You should take the capsule on an empty stomach or at least one hour before food. This medicine is not meant to be used by patients with severe renal impairment.

These are mild side effects of the drug and can be managed easily with or without medical help. However, inform your doctor at once if any of these become too bothersome. Also seek immediate medical attention if you develop eye pain, fast heartbeat or difficulty urinating. Stop using Sanctura XR immediately if your urination stops.
Discontinue Sanctura XR immediately if you have signs of an allergic reaction after taking the tablet. Signs of an allergy include severe dizziness, difficulty breathing, hives or facial swelling. Seek medical attention promptly if any of these signs persist even after discontinuing the medicine.
