Overactive Bladder : When medicines don’t work

Overactive bladder is a common problem among men and women in which the patient has a sudden uncontrollable urge to urinate.  In some cases this can be accompanied by urinary leakage while other patients may feel that they have to urinate very often.  Treatments for this common bladder disorder include medications such as Ditropan, Detrol, Vesicare, Enablex, Santura or Toviaz .  In some patients, the medications may not resolve the problem or side effects such as dry mouth, constipation or changes in mental status may preclude continuing the medication.  In this group of patients alternative treatments are  available and effective.  Urge PC  is an office based therapy that requires 12 half hour treatments and can markedly improve the symptoms of overactive bladder.  The Interstim device is another very effective option that can resolve the symptoms of overactive bladder .  So if your overactive bladder medicine is not working please contact our office to discuss the latest treatment options.
