How Can BOTOX Help Me?
BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) works on the bladder muscle by blocking the nerve signals that trigger your overactive bladder. BOTOX is a different treatment option when another type of medication (anticholinergic) does not work well enough or cannot be taken.
Treatment guidelines provided by the American Urological Association list BOTOX as an appropriate therapy to consider when self-management is not effective and oral medications are not working or have intolerable side effects.
By reducing bladder contractions, BOTOX can help:
- Reduce weekly urinary leakage episode
- Increase bladder capacity (how much urine your bladder can store)
- Decrease the pressure in your bladder (high bladder pressure can cause urine leakage)
More than 169,000 people with overactive bladder have been treated with BOTOX since it was approved by the FDA in 2013. One study involving about 100,000 patients, 71 percent of patients reported that they stopped taking oral medications for OAB within six months. (Patient results may vary.)
Talk with your doctor if you think you could benefit from BOTOX.
You deserve a better quality of life.
