Treatment for Overactive Bladder

Today, there are more overactive bladder treatment options than ever before. The choice of overactive bladder treatment depends on:
  • How serious it is
  • What best fits your lifestyle.
Overactive bladder treatment options fall into four broad categories:
  • Behavioral therapy
  • Medications
  • Devices
  • Surgery.
Experts agree that no overactive bladder treatment is perfect for everyone with incontinence. Overactive bladder treatment depends not only on the severity of overactive bladder, but on an individual's lifestyle, and personal preferences.
The success of overactive bladder treatment is an individual perception. It may not always be a reasonable expectation to be cured.
About 70 percent of women with overactive bladder benefit from a combination of simple measures, such as:
  • Bladder retraining
  • Exercises
  • Medication.
