  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Severe acid reflux. Simulated a heart attack. Having persistent problems when on Vesicare, AND not taken every day, but every other or over 3rd day. It's the only drug I take outside of Synthroid. I believe Vesicare relaxes the sphincter (smooth muscle tissue) in my esphogeal area as well as relaxing my spastic bladder. Ambulance came last nite I was in such INTENSE PAIN.
