It is my husband who has Parkinson's, but i see many of you Parkies have over active bladder. The medication cost of Detrol LA,capsules, or it's generic, tolterodine tartrate, is very expensive, I figured it is about $5 a pill. I can't get along without it unless i want to be up 7 times a night to the bathroom. It cuts it down to 2 or 3.
I found that using HALF of a capsule of the 4mg. works just as well as a whole one. That means I'm taking 2 mgs. a night. I bought empty gelatine capsules and i pour half of a 4mg into it and swallow the other half. It doesn't seem to matter if you swallow the little beads out of a capsule. They still seem to release medication over a 24 hour period. I have found 2 mg works as well as 4 mg and I'm saving a lot of money.
