Patients with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, the total lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take this medicine.

Concomitant treatment with other drugs possessing antimuscarinic properties may result in more pronounced therapeutic effect and side effects. Conversely, therapeutic effect of tolterodine may be reduced by concomitant administration of muscarinic cholinergic receptor agonist.
