Solifenacin is the main active ingredient of Soliten 5 mg. This drug belongs to a category of antimuscarinic or antagonists of muscarinic receptors. Soliten is prescribed for treating hyperactive/overactive urinary bladder.
Hyperactive urinary bladder is a medical situation with an uncontrolled urinary bladder contraction. This leads to frequent urination urges and no voluntary control over urine release. Solifenacin is very efficient in causing the relaxation of excessively contracted bladder muscles. This drug helps lower the frequency of urination as it interferes with certain chemicals constantly being produced in the body.
The recommended dose of Solifenacin for adults is 5 mg once every day. The dose should be adjusted as per the patient's response towards the drug under the supervision of your doctor. Report to your doctor after a regular interval of 3 to 4 weeks.
Solifenacin is available in the form of a tablet form to be consumed orally with a sufficient amount of water. Completely swallow this medicine with water, and do not chew it.
