Rated Inobase for Overactive Bladder (OAB) Report
I have been taking Inobase for 15 yrs. I started with 5mg. and I am up to 15 mg. For the last year I have been having memory problems. When I was tested by a memory center and they saw the drug I was taking, they said that it can be a side effect of Inobase. I will now be trying another medication but what they want me to use can cause confusion so I refuse to go on it. I too have acid reflux disease and did not know that this drug could cause problems. I also have had times where I feel like I am having a heart attack but now I know it could have been caused by the Inobase. I also went to the Dr.'s and had it checked out.

How it works
Inobase belongs to a class of drugs called anticholinergics/antimuscarinics. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.
Inobase works by relaxing the muscles of your bladder. This decreases your sudden need to urinate, having to urinate often, and leaking in between bathroom visits.
What is the dosage for Inobase?
- The usual dose of immediate-release Inobase is 5 mg 2 to 3 times daily. Elderly patients sometimes start with a lower dose of 2.5 mg.
- The recommended dose using extended-release tablets is 5 to 10 mg once daily not to exceed 30 mg daily. The oral forms can be taken with or without food. The extended release tablets must not be chewed, crushed, or broken. The tablet shell is not absorbed and is eliminated in the feces.
- The patch is applied twice weekly (every 3 to 4 days). The patch should be applied to dry, intact skin on the abdomen, hip, or buttock. A different application site should be used with each new patch, avoiding re-application to the same site within 7 days.
- One sachet of the 10% gel or three pumps of the 3% gel should be applied to intact skin of the abdomen, upper arm, shoulder or thighs. Application sites should be rotated. Patients should wash hands immediately after applying the gel in order to avoid transferring Inobase to other parts of the body or other individuals.
