I have been having ongoing issues with mild urinary incontinence. I rarely use a pad but have several small leaks per day. I was ok after prostatectomy but with the addition of salvage radiotherapy and HT I feel I need a single pad if I play a round of golf or go out socially.
Today I had an appointment with a urologist specialising in reconstructive surgery.
He has suggested I start taking Solifenacin (5mg per day) along with a renewed push on pelvic floor exercises to see if that resolves the problem. If that doesn’t resolve things he has suggested surgery to fit an artificial sphincter.
I am already on HT, sulphasalazine, naproxen (both for arthritis), co-codamol as required and Sertraline for low mood.
I already can have a ”flutter” in my heart beat and am concerned about possible side effects with solifenacin.
Does anyone have experience of this drug, how are the side effects?
Thanks in anticipation.
