Adults typically take 200 mg of Urispas three times per day. The maximum daily dose advised is 400 mg.
Urispas has no known interactions with medications. As with all medications, it is best to consult with your doctor before beginning or stopping any medication, though.
Mechanism of Action
Urispas functions by obstructing specific bodily chemicals that might otherwise cause spasms.
The human body contains small amounts of the trace mineral boron. Due to the lack of a known biological function for which the body needs it, it is not regarded as an essential nutrient.
The health of bones and cognitive function, however, may be influenced by boron, according to some studies. There isn't much scientific data to back up claims that boron supplements can treat these conditions, despite the marketing of these products.
In general, when consumed in the recommended doses, boron supplements are considered safe. However, these supplements should not be taken by those who are pregnant or have young children. The safety of boron supplements for these populations cannot be determined from the available scientific data.
Speak with your doctor first if you're thinking about taking a boron supplement.
Overdosage of Urispas is not specifically covered in the literature. The standard overdose treatment procedures should be implemented in the event of an overdose. These include supportive care, close observation, and gastric lavage.
