ENABLEX DESCRIPTION

Enablex is an anti-cholinergic i.e. it releases and activates acetylcholine or any other similar type of neurotransmitter and is available in 7.5 mg and 15 mg doses in extended release tablet form. It’s prime components are Darifenacin hydrobromide -a strong receptor antagonist – that stays along with Di-basic calcium phosphate anhydrous, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, tri-acetin and FD&C Yellow No. 6 Aluminum Lake, the latter being available only in the 15-mg tablet.

Darifenacin is responsible for relieving the bladder spasms, which stand as the symptoms for urinary frequency, urinary incontinence and urinary urgency.

Information you should know

Enablex is for treating overactive bladder (OAB) in adults. Enablex provides relief from OAB symptoms by affecting certain receptors on the urinary bladder that stay responsible for involuntary muscle spasms. The medicine imparts control on the bladder muscle to restore back control once again, thus putting a stop to urgency, urinary incontinence and urinary frequency. Multiple oral administration of the medicine in healthy adults has showed darifenacin’s peak plasma concentrations reached within seven hours after dosing while a steady state of plasma concentrations was achieved on the sixth day after the dosing.

The side effects that show up most frequently are a dry mouth and mild abdominal pain caused by constipation and indigestion during the first two weeks after treatment begin. Other common side effects are a blurred vision and heat
prostration due to decreased sweating in a hot environment.

Enables often conflicts with other medicines including vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements. Thus, those under medication of Nizoral, Sporonox or are taking anti-fungal medicines, antibiotics, antiviral medicines, depression-treating medicines and cardiac medications must let know the physician they are visiting beforehand.
