Sherry on Apr, 20, 2011:
I have been taking vesicare up to 10mg dosage now... I have started to have such severe fatigue that I can not function very well normally. I want to sleep all the time but have to make myself work... I have a hard time driving... I thought I had a different problem but all my bloodwork came back fine... just now put together the possibility of a drug interaction from vesicare and the timing of the fatigue and the beginning of taking this drug. I also feel like I have brain fog and trouble concentrating properly. It really is interfering with my quality of life.

Same here I tried splitting 10mg pill in half with slight improvement. Starting today I will stop taking this drug. Cannot concentrate always tired and everything is a chore to do. This pill is like a depressant for me.

Not Happy on Mar, 28, 2011:
Medication has me extremely tired, and fatigued.
Dizzy, can't concentrate, my head is that foggy. Feel sick in the stomach. Headache, with pressure inside my head. Sensitive to light, it makes my eyes hurt and I am feeling extremely sad, and keep crying. and alternate to not feeling anything but numb, and have no interest in anything.
Can't take this and drive children to school and home. I cant seem to walk in a straight line I am that clumsy at the moment. and this is just from the first 5mg dose, that I took almost 24 hours ago, and I am still feeling like this.
From this study (4 years ago):
