Chemically, solifenacin succinate is butanedioic acid, compounded with (1)-(3)-1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-3-yl 3,4-dihydro-1-phenyl-2(1)-iso-quinolinecarboxylate (1:1) having an empirical formula of CHNO•CHO, and a molecular weight of 480.55.

Solifenacin succinate is a white to pale-yellowish-white crystal or crystalline powder. It is freely soluble at room temperature in water, glacial acetic acid, dimethyl sulfoxide, and methanol.

What might happen if I take too much VESIcare?

Overdosage with VESIcare can potentially result in severe anticholinergic effects and should be treated accordingly. The highest dose ingested in an accidental overdose of solifenacin succinate was 280 mg in a 5-hour period. This case was associated with mental status changes. Some cases reported a decrease in the level of consciousness.

Intolerable anticholinergic side effects (fixed and dilated pupils, blurred vision, failure of heel-to-toe exam, tremors and dry skin) occurred on day 3 in normal volunteers taking 50 mg daily (5 times the maximum recommended therapeutic dose) and resolved within 7 days following discontinuation of drug.

In the event of overdose with VESIcare, treat with gastric lavage and appropriate supportive measures. ECG monitoring is also recommended.


How should I store and handle VESIcare?

Store the vials in original cartons between 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F). [See .] Retain in the original package to protect from light.Product: 68151-5406NDC: 68151-5406-1 1 TABLET, FILM COATED in a BLISTER PACK Product: 68151-5406NDC: 68151-5406-1 1 TABLET, FILM COATED in a BLISTER PACK

Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

No Image found
Clinical Pharmacology

Solifenacin is a competitive muscarinic receptor antagonist. Muscarinic receptors play an important role in several major cholinergically mediated functions, including contractions of urinary bladder smooth muscle and stimulation of salivary secretion.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
VESIcare is contraindicated in patients with:

Angioedema of the face, lips, tongue, and/or larynx have been reported with solifenacin. In some cases angioedema occurred after the first dose. Cases of angioedema have been reported to occur hours after the first dose or after multiple doses. Angioedema associated with upper airway swelling may be life threatening. If involvement of the tongue, hypopharynx, or larynx occurs, solifenacin should be promptly discontinued and appropriate therapy and/or measures necessary to ensure a patent airway should be promptly provided.  Anaphylactic reactions have been reported rarely in patients treated with solifenacin succinate. Solifenacin succinate should not be used in patients with a known or suspected hypersensitivity to solifenacin succinate. In patients who develop anaphylactic reactions, solifenacin succinate should be discontinued and appropriate therapy and/or measures should be taken.
