Chemically, flavoxate hydrochloride is 2-piperidinoethyl 3-methyl-4-oxo-2-phenyl-4H-1-benzopyran-8-carboxylate hydrochloride. The empirical formula of flavoxate hydrochloride is CHNO•HCl. The molecular weight is 427.94. The structural formula appears below.
Each tablet for oral administration contains 100 mg flavoxate hydrochloride. In addition, each tablet contains the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, corn starch, dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, polydextrose. titanium dioxide and triacetin.
Flavoxate hydrochloride counteracts smooth muscle spasm of the urinary tract and exerts its effect directly on the muscle.
In a single study of 11 normal male subjects, the time to onset of action was 55 minutes. The peak effect was observed at 112 minutes. 57% of the flavoxate hydrochloride was excreted in the urine within 24 hours.
Flavoxate hydrochloride tablets are indicated for symptomatic relief of dysuria, urgency, nocturia, suprapubic pain, frequency and incontinence as may occur in cystitis, prostatitis, urethritis, urethrocystitis/urethrotrigonitis.

Mutagenicity studies and long-term studies in animals to determine the carcinogenic potential of flavoxate hydrochloride have not been performed.
Reproduction studies have been performed in rats and rabbits at doses up to 34 times the human dose and revealed no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to flavoxate hydrochloride. There are, however, no well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, this drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
