07 Feb 2018 when I first started using vesicare they were ok then my symptoms reappeared I had constipation,cold like symptoms,acid reflux ,acough and dry mouth.

28 Dec 2017 Vesicare is responsible for putting my mom in the hospital after only one dose. She has always been healthy with no serious health conditions-only mild asthma and allergies. Once she took Vesicare she had 3 mini-strokes, was confused, had difficulty thinking, couldn't talk, had muscle and joint pain, chest pain, anxiety, high blood pressure and heart rate, a temporary heart arrhythmia, flu-like symptoms, headaches, stomach problems, dizziness, and a "heavy" s sensation in her arms, legs, and tongue. She did not take any additional doses but is still having confusion, dizziness, headaches, trouble talking, memory loss, and fatigue 5 days later. I pray that these symptoms are temporary and will go away but I don't know if they will because they should have stopped by now. We will be reporting her experience to the FDA and I will share it on every site I can in hopes that this never happens to anyone else.

13 Dec 2012 Great medication for overactive bladder. Think it may be causing my dry mouth and the fact that much of my food tastes like cardboard or pure salt.
