Below is a list of frequently asked questions about Toviaz — a treatment for overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. For more information, don’t forget to talk to your doctor.
OAB is a real medical condition that affects over 33 million men and women in the United States. With OAB, the bladder muscle squeezes too often. Or when you don't want it to. This can cause frequent, strong sudden urges to go. This is also known as "urgency." You may even have accidents.
OAB is not necessarily a normal part of aging. While prevalence increases as you get older, the truth is that OAB can affect anyone at any age. People can get symptoms in their early 30s or 40s, or at an even younger age. The good news is the symptoms of OAB can often be treated.
Some of the physical and emotional effects of OAB may include:
It's common to feel embarrassed. For suggestions on how to talk with your doctor, take a look at the OAB Conversation Starters.
The most important thing to do is encourage your loved one to talk to a doctor about their OAB symptoms today. You can also help them find out the facts and explore treatment options.
Toviaz (fesoterodine fumarate) is a prescription medicine used in adults to treat symptoms of a condition called overactive bladder, including:
Toviaz helps calm the bladder muscle that causes frequent, strong sudden urges. Just one Toviaz pill per day helps to reduce bothersome symptoms. If you have symptoms of OAB, ask your doctor if Toviaz is right for you.
Before starting Toviaz, tell your doctor about all of your medical and other conditions that may affect the use of Toviaz, including:
Before starting on Toviaz, tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins and herbal products. Toviaz may affect the way other medicines work, and other medicines may affect how Toviaz works. Especially tell your doctor if you are taking antibiotics or antifungal medicines.

Before you take Toviaz, you should tell your doctor if you take any other medications. Be sure to mention prescription and over-the-counter medicines as well as vitamins and herbal supplements.
You can take Toviaz with or without food. Take Toviaz with liquid and swallow the tablet whole. Do not chew, divide, or crush the tablet.

If you take more Toviaz than your doctor prescribes, call a doctor or go to an emergency room at a hospital right away.
There is no cure for OAB. Toviaz only works to calm the bladder while you are taking the medication. If you stop, your symptoms may return.
