Angioedema (swelling in the deep layers of the skin) of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat has been reported with Myrbetriq. Angioedema developed in some individuals after the first dosage. Cases of angioedema have been reported to occur hours after the first dose or after multiple doses. If involvement of the tongue, hypopharynx, or larynx occurs, Myrbetriq should be discontinued immediately and appropriate therapy and/or measures to maintain a patent airway should be started.
