I just started taking Toviaz MG two days ago. Since I started taking it I have noticed an increase in my urgency which is opposite of what it is supposed to do. Is that natural and will stop in a few days.Also I have had retention in the morning, Due to my problem I take 10MG of Melatonin at night to help me sleep. Could the combination of the Toviaz and Melatonin be causing the retention or is it just the toviaz.Thank You

Slightly not much. It has been checked. Take Rappaflow everyday. I have intertestial Cystitis
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 months ago

Ok. Toviaz is not the greatest drug for IC either

have you tried elavil or elmiron?

Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 months ago

No that is not natural

toviaz does nothing for IC

it is the wrong choice in med

elmiron will help

elavil will help

both are good choices

LIke I said before Urgency is my main problem. That is why I am taking the Toviaz
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 months ago
