  4- Contraindications:
  Acute retention of urine; cases of prostatic enlargement in which surgical treatment is indicated (residual urine in excess of 100 ml); glaucoma; mechanical stenoses in the gastro-intestinal tract; tachyarrhythmia; megacolon.
   
  5- Tolerance & Dosage:
 
Both in short courses and in long-term administration (up to one year) Spasmo-Urgenin was outstandingly well tolerated. In therapeutic doses it did not produce the familiar side-effects of atropine-like drugs on saliva flow (dryness of the mouth) or accommodation (GOEBELS 1972). Gastric upsets and diarrhoea are extremely rare, and are seen only in patients predisposed to such disorders.
Regular checks (protein, sugar and bile pigments in urine, urinary deposit, renal function tests, blood pressure, alkali reserve, electrolytes, serum uric acid, transaminases, non-protein nitrogen, creatinine, etc.) gave no evidence of any abnormality. Even during long-term treatment (one year) there were no deviations from normal (VAHLENSIECK 1968). There is no danger of accumulation.
The best results have been obtained with moderate doses – 2 sugar – coated tablets 3 times daily, taken after meal. In mild cases one sugar – coated tablet 3 or 4 times daily may be enough.
As a rule it is advisable to give Spasmo-Urgenin for at least 2 – 4 weeks so as to consolidate the symptomatic relief gained. Any recurrence of urinary symptoms can nearly always be controlled by immediate recommencement of Spasmo-Urgenin.
Spasmo-Urgenin can be used together with antibacterial agents (antibiotics, sulphonamides, nitrofurantion, etc.) (FRANK 1971) or with hormones, and is well tolerated in such combinations. It reinforces and supplements their primary effects.
