Duvoid Description

Duvoid is a prescription strength drug that may be prescribed if you are experiencing urinary retention. This means that you are having difficulty urinating that may result from the after-effects of a surgical procedure, diabetic neuropathy, or when you have given birth. Once you have been examined to determine that this condition is not a result of a blockage, your doctor may prescribe Duvoid or generic Bethanechol. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Duvoid Can Help Relieve Urinary Retention

Duvoid acts on the parasympathetic receptors in order to increase bladder muscle tone which will then produce a contraction strong enough to initiate urination so your bladder will empty. The onset of this action is between thirty minutes to one hour and will work for up to six hours. If you are in pain or very uncomfortable due to having a full bladder and not being able to urinate, your doctor may insert a catheter to relieve your immediate distress, usually done in hospital.

Conditions That Can Benefit from Duvoid

Most people don’t even give a second thought to how our body works in order to perform such everyday tasks as urinating. It is not just a matter of “going”; your muscles and nerves have to work together to hold urine in your bladder and release it at the right time. Your bladder uses nerves to send messages to your brain that it is full. In turn, your brain uses nerves to signal the muscles to either tighten so we can hold the urine until we can get to a bathroom, or release when it’s appropriate to do so.

After giving birth the tissues that surround your urethra and bladder can be swollen or bruised which can interfere with your ability to urinate temporarily; so your obstetrician may recommend taking Duvoid or generic Bethanechol to help stimulate the nerves you need to empty your bladder.

Diabetic neuropathy can also affect your bladder from receiving signals that it is full and time to empty. If you have uncontrolled diabetes with constant high blood sugar levels, nerves throughout your body can sustain damage, including those that affect your bladder. Men with enlarged prostates may also benefit from taking Duvoid to help with urinary retention.

Before You Take Duvoid

Ask your doctor if Duvoid is safe to take if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions and allergies you have to your doctor and provide a list of all Rx medications, over the counter drugs, or any dietary or vitamin supplements and herbal preparations you are taking. Then a decision can be made whether Duvoid is the right medication for you.

Duvoid Precautions and Proper Use

Duvoid may cause nausea or vomiting if taken too soon after a meal so take it one hour before or two hours after eating. You may feel dizzy or lightheaded after taking Duvoid, so you should not operate a vehicle or perform other tasks considered risky until you know how Duvoid will affect you. Hot weather, exercise, and drinking alcohol may increase the effects of Duvoid.
