Are there any risks in taking Sanctura?

If you are pregnant, Sanctura (trospium) may increase the risk of having a miscarriage. It is unknown whether Sanctura passes into breast milk, so check with your doctor regarding any risks to your baby if you are breastfeeding. There may also be risks involved with taking Sanctura with other drugs, so tell your doctor about all medications and supplements you take. Sanctura may affect certain other medical conditions you may have, such as kidney or liver disease, enlarged prostate, glaucoma, stomach or intestinal problems, or muscle disorders. Sanctura also decreases your sweat output, which increases your risk for heat stroke, particularly in very warm weather. Sanctura can also make you sleepy, which can put you at risk for accidents when driving or doing other potentially dangerous tasks.  It can also cause a serious allergic reaction called angioedema, a condition which involves a swelling of the lips, tongue, mouth or face.
