What should I know about darifenacin tablets before taking them?

Before taking darifenacin extended-release tablets, let your doctor know if you have ever had urinary difficulty or a blockage in your digestive system. Your doctor may not recommend darifenacin extended-release tablets in these instances. The same caution should be considered if you have or have had nervous system disorders, muscle weakness, liver disease, ulcerative colitis, glaucoma, severe constipation, or enlarged prostate.  Also, if you are pregnant or are breastfeeding, you may not be able to take darifenacin extended-release tablets. If you are allergic to darifenacin, food, medications, or other substances, tell your doctor about this. Taking nonprescription or other prescription drugs such as antidepressants, antihistamines, medications prescribed for irritable bowel syndrome, Parkinson's disease, motion sickness, urinary difficulties, or ulcers, may also increase your risk for side effects while taking darifenacin extended-release tablets. Inform your doctor about all medications, as well as, any vitamins and herbs you take because these can negatively interact with darifenacin extended-release tablets.  Taking darifenacin may cause your body temperature to rise due to decreased sweating, and also cause  blurred vision and dizziness. Talk to your doctor about all of your health concerns before taking this medication. If you experience any unusual side effects while taking darifenacin extended-release tablets, contact your doctor immediately.
