Sanctura (Trospium chloride) Dosage and Side Effects

SANCTURA is used to treat overactive bladder and symptoms of urinary incontinence, frequency, and urgency.

Proper Use of this medication

Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line.

Overdose symptoms may include severe forms of some of the side effects listed in this medication guide.

Take the missed dose 1 hour before your next meal. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Stop using SANCTURA and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:

  • severe stomach pain or bloating;

Warnings and Precautions

You should not take this medicine if you are allergic to SANCTURA, or if you have untreated or uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma, a blockage in your digestive system, or if you are unable to urinate.

Take SANCTURA on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before a meal.

Avoid drinking alcohol within 2 hours before or after you take SANCTURA. Drinking alcohol can increase certain side effects of SANCTURA.

This medication may cause blurred vision and may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert and able to see clearly.

Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. SANCTURA can decrease sweating, which makes it easier for you to have heat stroke. Drink plenty of fluids while you are taking this medication.

Before using SANCTURA, tell your doctor if you regularly use other medicines that make you sleepy (such as cold or allergy medicine, sedatives, narcotic pain medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression, or anxiety). They can add to sleepiness caused by SANCTURA.

You should not use SANCTURA if you are allergic to it, or if you have:

  • untreated or uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma;
  • a blockage in your digestive system; or
  • if you are unable to urinate.

To make sure you can safely take SANCTURA, tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:

  • glaucoma;
  • liver disease;
  • kidney disease;
  • a stomach or intestinal disorder such as ulcerative colitis;
  • a muscle disorder such as myasthenia gravis; or
  • an enlarged prostate.

It is not known whether SANCTURA will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication.

It is not known whether SANCTURA passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Older adults may be more likely to have side effects from this medicine.
