Sanctura (Trospium) is used to treat overactive bladder and symptoms of urinary incontinence, frequency, and urgency. Sanctura belongs to a class of medications called antimuscarinics, and works by blocking the effect of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, on muscarinic receptors organs that are responsive, which includes the bladder. It acts to block some of the actions of parasympathetic nervous system, which in turn relaxes the smooth muscle in the bladder, decreasing muscle spasms and allowing for better control over urination.
