Urispas is used to treat bladder symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, increased night-time urination, bladder pain, and incontinence (urine leakage). These bladder symptoms are often caused by overactive bladder, prostate enlargement, bladder infections, or irritation of the urethra.
Urispas will not treat a bacterial or fungal bladder infection. Infections must be treated with an antibiotic.
Urispas may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to urispas, or if you have untreated or uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma, a blockage in your digestive tract (stomach or intestines), or if you are unable to urinate.

This medication is used to treat certain bladder/urinary tract symptoms. Urispas is a smooth-muscle relaxant. It works by relaxing the muscles in the bladder. Urispas helps to reduce leaking of urine, feelings of needing to urinate right away, frequent trips to the bathroom, and bladder pain. This medication does not treat the cause of your bladder symptoms (e.g., urinary tract/bladder/prostate infection or inflammation).

Take this medication by mouth, usually 3-4 times a day or as directed by your doctor. Take with food if stomach upset occurs. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Your doctor may lower your dose after your symptoms have improved. The length of treatment depends on the cause of the problem. Do not increase your dose or take this medication more often without your doctor’s approval. Your condition will not improve any faster, and the risk of side effects may be increased. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
Nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, headache, drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, and nervousness may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. To relieve dry mouth, suck on (sugarless) hard candy or ice chips, chew (sugarless) gum, drink water, or use a saliva substitute. To prevent constipation, maintain a diet adequate in fiber, drink plenty of water, and exercise. If you become constipated, consult your pharmacist for help in choosing a laxative (e.g., stimulant-type with stool softener). Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. Tell your doctor right away if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: mental/mood changes (e.g., confusion), eye pain. Tell your doctor right away if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur: chest pain, fast/pounding heartbeat, signs of infection (e.g., fever, persistent sore throat), stomach/intestinal blockage (e.g., persistent nausea/vomiting, long-lasting constipation), difficult/painful urination. A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare.
