Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
I have gain 50 pounds since taking Toviaz - I weighed 101 pounds before I starting taking Toviaz. I am a light eater, do not drink soft drinks - only consume water, or Snapple White Tea, no alcohol. I eat sensibly - fresh vegetables - fresh fruit, chicken or fish. I eat no breakfast. For lunch a salad, and dinner usually, vegetables and sometimes with chicken or fish. I have tried to figure out the cause of the weight gain and the only thing different in my daily routine is taking 4 mg of Toviaz - so am wondering if this is the cause. I take the Tovias for an overactive bladder.
