Botox for Overactive Bladder
Botox is used to treat overactive bladders (OAB) in patients who are not able to be treated using other medications. The Botox injection into the bladder muscle causes it to relax, and it increases the bladder's storage capacity
OAB is a condition in which the bladder squeezes too often or without warning, leading to urinary incontinence, sudden urgent need to urinate and frequent urination. Botox is injected into the bladder muscle and causes it to relax, increasing the bladder's storage capacity and reducing the loss of bladder control.
