Molecular Formula:
Molecular Weight:
Flavoxate is an anticholinergic with antimuscarinic effects. Its muscle relaxant properties may be due to a direct action on the smooth muscle rather than by antagonizing muscarinic receptors.

1.Spectrofluorimetric determination of 3-methylflavone-8-carboxylic acid, the main active metabolite of flavoxate hydrochloride in human urine.
Zaazaa HE1, Mohamed AO2, Hawwam MA2, Abdelkawy M3. Spectrochim Acta A Mol Biomol Spectrosc. 2015 Jan 5;134:109-13. doi: 10.1016/j.saa.2014.06.058. Epub 2014 Jun 20.
A simple, sensitive and selective spectrofluorimetric method has been developed for the determination of 3-methylflavone-8-carboxylic acid as the main active metabolite of flavoxate hydrochloride in human urine. The proposed method was based on the measurement of the native fluorescence of the metabolite in methanol at an emission wavelength 390 nm, upon excitation at 338 nm. Moreover, the urinary excretion pattern has been calculated using the proposed method. Taking the advantage that 3-methylflavone-8-carboxylic acid is also the alkaline degradate, the proposed method was applied to in vitro determination of flavoxate hydrochloride in tablets dosage form via the measurement of its corresponding degradate. The method was validated in accordance with the ICH requirements and statistically compared to the official method with no significant difference in performance.
2.Short-Term Flavoxate Treatment Alters Detrusor Contractility Characteristics: Renewed Interest in Clinical Use?
Tang HC1, Lam WP1, Zhang X1, Leung PC1,2, Yew DT1, Liang W1. Low Urin Tract Symptoms. 2015 Sep;7(3):149-54. doi: 10.1111/luts.12063. Epub 2014 Jun 3.
OBJECTIVES: Flavoxate has had a long history of use in the treatment of overactive bladder, despite the lack of documentation on its clinical efficacy and mechanism(s) of action. This study was conducted to understand how contractility characteristics of the detrusor are affected after a short period of flavoxate treatment.
3.Flavoxate in urogynecology: an old drug revisited.
Zor M1, Aydur E, Dmochowski RR. Int Urogynecol J. 2015 Jul;26(7):959-66. doi: 10.1007/s00192-014-2585-5. Epub 2014 Dec 6.
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Since its emergence in 1967, flavoxate has been used to treat several urogenital tract disorders irrespective of the etiology of the underlying disease, but the main indications have been overactive bladder and urge symptomatology. With the advances in anticholinergic drugs, its popularity has decreased in recent decades.
4.Intravenous or local injections of flavoxate in the rostral pontine reticular formation inhibit urinary frequency induced by activation of medial frontal lobe neurons in rats.
Sugaya K1, Nishijima S2, Kadekawa K2, Ashitomi K2, Ueda T3, Yamamoto H4. J Urol. 2014 Oct;192(4):1278-85. doi: 10.1016/j.juro.2014.04.092. Epub 2014 Apr 30.
PURPOSE: The rostral pontine reticular formation has a strong inhibitory effect on micturition by facilitating lumbosacral glycinergic neurons. We assessed the influence of the rostral pontine reticular formation on the micturition reflex after noradrenaline injection in the medial frontal lobe. We also examined the relation between the medial frontal lobe and the rostral pontine reticular formation.
