INTRODUCTION

DERITAS 7.5MG contains Darifenacin which belongs to a class of medicines known as Anticholinergic agents, which relaxes the muscles of the bladder. It is used to treat the symptoms of overactive bladder conditions such as a sudden urge to rush to the toilet, frequent urination and wetting yourself (urge incontinence). This medicine works by reducing the activity of an overactive bladder by relaxing the bladder muscles, which enables you to wait longer before you go to the toilet and increases the amount of urine that your bladder can hold.

Overactive bladder is a condition which causes a frequent and sudden urge to urinate that may be difficult to control. It happens when you cannot control your bladder contractions. When these muscle contractions happen too often or cannot be controlled, you get symptoms of overactive bladder such as urinary urgency, incontinence (leakage) and frequent urination.

Always take this DERITAS 7.5MG exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have liver, kidney or heart problems, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. Do not drive or operate machinery while taking this medicine, since it may cause dizziness, blurred vision, trouble sleeping or drowsiness. It is not suitable for use in children and adolescents below 18 years of age. The common side effects are dry mouth and constipation.
