Answer

Fesoterodine (Toviaz) has been FDA approved for symptoms of overactive bladder (eg, urinary urge incontinence, urgency, frequency). It is a competitive muscarinic receptor antagonist and administered once daily.

Rule out narrow-angle glaucoma prior to prescribing an anticholinergic agent. Experienced ophthalmologists can convert narrow-angle glaucoma to open-angle glaucoma. Patients who are taking an anticholinergic agent should be monitored to prevent pharmacologically induced urinary retention.
