Additional information

Usage

Usage
Solifenacin is available in tablet form for oral consumption. Typically, it is taken once a day, whether with or without food. To ensure consistency, take it at approximately the same time daily. It is crucial to adhere to the instructions on your prescription label meticulously. If any aspect is unclear, consult your doctor or pharmacist for clarification. Follow the prescribed dosage precisely and do not exceed or reduce it or take it more frequently than instructed by your doctor.

Ingest the tablets intact; do not break, chew, or crush them. Use water or another liquid to facilitate swallowing. Your doctor will likely commence your treatment with a low solifenacin dose and may adjust it later. While solifenacin can help manage your symptoms, it does not offer a cure. Continue taking solifenacin even if you are feeling well, and do not discontinue it without consulting your doctor.

Storage

Storage
To ensure safe medication handling:
1. Store it in its original container, sealed tightly, and out of children's reach.
2. Keep it at room temperature, away from excessive heat and moisture (avoid storing in the bathroom).
3. Dispose of any unnecessary medication properly to prevent access by pets, kids, or others.
4. Avoid disposing of this medication by flushing it down the toilet. Opt for a medicine take-back program for disposal; consult your pharmacist or local waste management for details.
5. As many containers aren't child-resistant, secure all medications from children, including weekly pill organizers and those for eye drops, creams, patches, and inhalers. To prevent accidental poisoning, use safety caps and store medications up and away, out of children's sight and reach.
