Urecholine is a prescribed medication used to treat certain urinary problems, such as difficulty urinating after surgery or childbirth, and when the bladder has trouble contracting due to nerve issues, leading to urine retention. 

As a cholinergic agent, Urecholine works by enhancing bladder muscle contractions, leading to improved urination ability. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Urecholine and with every prescription refill, carefully review its medication guide and patient information leaflet. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to consult your healthcare provider or pharmacist. 

Urecholine dosage is determined based on the patient’s medical condition and response to treatment. 

Typically, Urecholine is taken 3 to 4 times daily on an empty stomach (about one hour before or two hours after meals) to minimize the risk of nausea or vomiting. 

For optimal results, take this medication exactly as directed at around the same times daily. Avoid taking more than instructed or increasing the frequency beyond your doctor’s recommendation.
