The advantage: Botox is used focally in the bladder, thus avoiding systemic side effects, including dry mouth. Catheter Output It is important to be aware of catheter output. Prospective, randomized, double-blind study of the efficacy and tolerability of the extended-release formulations of oxybutynin and tolterodine for overactive bladder: results of the OPERA trial. Eur Urol. 2005;48(1):526. Haab F, Stewart L, Dwyer P. Darifenacin, an M3 selective receptor antagonist, is an effective and well-tolerated once-daily treatment for overactive bladder. Some patients use the same catheter for months and remain infection-free.
Stretching affects the muscle tone of the bladder. It also may not empty completely. One US study reported 2.8% of the population experienced primary hyperhidrosis. Eur Urol1997;31(4):459-63. Naseri M, Hiradfar M. Monosymptomatic and non–monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis: a clinical evaluation. Evaluation of quality of life over time among 453 patients with hyperhidrosis submitted to endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy. J Vasc Surg. 2012; 55(1): 154-6. [Abstract]. Long-term results and complications using augmentation cystoplasty in reconstructive urology. How the bladder works Urine is piped down thin tubes called ureters, which normally allow urine to flow only in one direction.
Another recent authoritative review19 suggested that all of the anticholinergic drugs have similar efficacy.Until further research in primary care settings is performed, there is little evidence to guide family physicians in the choice of anticholinergic medications for urge incontinence. Keep the Oxytrol patch in its sealed pouch until you are ready to use it. You should change the patch twice per week (such as every Sunday and Thursday). Use a calendar to help you keep a steady patch-changing schedule. For the first few weeks, it is a good idea to measure the amount of urine drained with each catheterization.
