What should I know about VESIcare before taking it?

Side effects of VESIcare include blurred vision and delayed reactions, so take care when driving, using heavy machinery, or engaging in other potentially hazardous activities if you start taking the drug. If you are allergic to solifenacin, the active ingredient in VESIcare, you should tell your doctor so that you will not have it prescribed for you. If you have a total blockage in your urinary or digestive tract or narrow angle glaucoma that you have not treated or controlled, you should not take VESIcare. Because VESIcare can limit the amount that you perspire, you should take care when you spend a long time in the sun and heat, as you may get heat stroke more readily. You and your doctor must consider all potential risks and benefits before making a decision to prescribe VESIcare.
