SOLIFENACIN SUCCINATE EP/IHS
Solifenacin is only found in individuals that have used or taken this drug. It is a urinary antispasmodic of the anticholinergic class. It is used in the treatment of overactive bladder with urge incontinence. Solifenacin is a competitive muscarinic acetylcholine receptor antagonist. The binding of acetylcholine to these receptors, particularly the M3 receptor subtype, plays a critical role in the contraction of smooth muscle. By preventing the binding of acetylcholine to these receptors, solifenacin reduces smooth muscle tone in the bladder, allowing the bladder to retain larger volumes of urine and reducing the number of incontinence episodes.
