BOTOX® (onobotulinum toxin) 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.
By reducing bladder contractions, BOTOX® can help:
- Reduce weekly urinary 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)
If you have any additional questions about urinary incontinence resulting from a neurologic condition or treatment with BOTOX®, please talk with your urologist.
