Also Known As: Tolterodine, Detrol, Detrusitol

Tolterodine (Detrol, Detrusitol) is an antimuscarinic drug that is used to treat urinary incontinence.

Detrusor overactivity (DO, contraction of the muscular bladder wall) is the most common form of UI in older adults. It is characterized by uninhibited bladder contractions causing an uncontrollable urge to void. Urinary frequency, urge incontinence and nocturnal incontinence occur. Abnormal bladder contractions that coincide with the urge to void can be measured by urodynamic studies. Treatment is bladder retraining or with drugs that inhibit bladder contractions such as oxybutinin and tolterodine.

It is marketed by Pfizer in Canada and the United States by its brand name Detrol. In Egypt it is also found under the trade names Tolterodine by Sabaa and Incont L.A. by Adwia.
