There is now some great news for those who suffer from overactive bladder. The FDA has now approved for Botox to be used to treat overactive bladders. For those who may not know, an overactive bladder is when the bladder squeezes maybe too often, or sometimes squeezes without warning. If the bladder reacts this way, it can lead to urine leakage, also known as urinary incontinence. Sufferers may also frequently urinate, or constantly feel the need to urinate. Overactive bladder can be a struggle for many Americans, and even though there are currently medications to help with it, they may not be effective enough.

The medications Anticholinergics are prescribed to help with overactive bladder, but if you are still suffering from the effects from an overactive bladder, then Botox can help. Botox has long been known to be a muscle relaxer and is, usually, used in the face of those wishing to remain young looking. By Botox relaxing the muscle, it allows for less movement in the face, causing fewer wrinkles and a more youthful look. Botox can also be injected into the feet of those who constantly where tight, uncomfortable heels, so they can walk through the pain. Botox has many uses, and now the FDA has approved it for overactive bladders.

Botox will be injected into the bladder muscle by a doctor, causing the bladder to relax.

With fewer episodes from overactive bladder symptoms, you can live a more normal life. Each person must consult with a doctor to see if Botox is a good substitute for your current medication for overactive bladders.

The Cystoscopy procedure will allow the doctor to view the bladder as the Botox is being injected. Botox injections into the bladder is not as simple as facial injections, these need to be implemented carefully by an actual doctor, in an office visit. If the injections are performed correctly, you will quickly get relief from your overactive bladder.

Overactive bladder is a condition that affects a reported 33 million men and women in America. With the introduction of Botox to treat this condition, it gives sufferers other options besides the current medicines. Clinical studies have proven that Botox is extremely effective against an overactive bladder. Once injected, test subjects, had relief from frequent urination, as well as urinary incontinence. Two clinical trials have been conducted with over 1100 patients, with symptoms of urinary incontinence. After successful trials had proved that Botox injections into the bladder were safe, as well as effective, the FDA went on to approve Botox to be used to fight overactive bladder symptoms.

It's recommended that treatment should be at least 12 weeks apart, but they should not be repeated until the effectiveness of the first injection has worn down. Even with successful clinical trials, there have been reported side effects. Some side effects include urinary tract infections, urinary retention, which is a condition that causes the bladder to not be emptied completely. Painful urination has also been reported with the use of Botox. For those who have urinary retention, a catheter may be needed until this condition subsides. In order to be a candidate for Botox treatment in the bladder, you must urinary tract infection free. Antibiotics may be needed before and after Botox treatment, to prevent urinary tract infections from occurring.

Botox is not for everyone. You must decide if this is something that you need, or want, in substitute of your current medication. If you are still having great difficulty with overactive bladder while on your current medication, then you may want to switch over to Botox. If after taking Botox injections into the bladder, you are still not having full relief, then you will need to consult your doctor for other options. With proven studies showing that most patients did achieve overactive bladder relief, Botox is an excellent substitute for the current medications available for overactive bladders.
