Superior Side-Effect Profile Earns Vesicare Gold Standard Status Over Sales-Leading Detrol LA/Detrusitol XL, According to a New Report from

WALTHAM, Mass., April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that a drug's effect on the reduction of urge urinary incontinence episodes (and the resulting improvement in a patient's quality of life) is the attribute that most influences urologists' prescribing decisions in the treatment of urge urinary incontinence.
