What should I know about solifenacin (VESIcare)?

If your doctor has prescribed solifenacin (VESIcare) for you, you should be aware that the doctor needs to know if you have liver or kidney disease, problems urinating, glaucoma, digestive problems like blockage or heart problems.

Avoid exercising in hot weather or hot rooms, and be sure to drink plenty of fluids, as solifenacin affects your ability to perspire and makes you more prone to heat stroke. Avoid driving or operating heavy machinery when taking solifenacin succinate, as it can impair your ability to see clearly and respond as needed. Seek immediate medical attention if you begin to experience symptoms, such as overheating, unquenchable thirst, discomfort during urination, constipation or if you completely stop urinating.

Solifenacin can be harmful to infants and unborn children, so do not take solifenacin while pregnant or breastfeeding. Before taking solifenacin, tell your doctor about all of the prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, vitamins and herbal supplements you are taking.
