Did you know that Botox (yes, that Botox) is one of the latest techniques to treat incontinence?
Are you living with urinary incontinence due to an overactive bladder? Have you tried an medication for urinary incontinence and still have leakage or cannot tolerate the side effects? BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is one treatment option that may be able to help reduce your leakage episodes. BOTOX® patients had about 22 fewer leakage episodes each week (compared to about 13 fewer for placebo).
BOTOX® reduces activity in the bladder muscle by reducing bladder contractions. It can help:
- Reduce leakage episodes
- Increase bladder capacity (how much urine your bladder can store)
- Decrease the pressure in your bladder (high bladder pressure can cause urine leakage)Indications
“After suffering with incontinence and trying medication which never controlled the problem completely, the doctors at West Alabama Urology Associates suggested a new treatment option using Botox injections into my bladder. This simple procedure proved very beneficial and was a success for me.”
