Botox for Overactive Bladder

If you have tried Overactive Bladder (OAB) medications and discovered that they didn’t work well enough, or perhaps you couldn’t tolerate the side effects, there is now another very effective treatment option.

Also, realize that you are not alone. In fact, in one study of 1117 patients, 73.5% of them reported that they stopped taking their OAB medications within one year. According to 2 separate surveys, the top reason that OAB patients discontinued their medication was due to the side effects and/or lack of results.

Botox is an injectable medication that acts to temporarily decrease the muscle contractions where it is locally injected. Botox is known for its popular use in cosmetics, but it actually has a long history of far reaching medical applications. It is commonly used for diverse conditions like muscle spasticity, headaches, as well as more recently, the treatment of OAB. Leading urological medical societies endorse the use of Botox for OAB.

How is Botox Administered?

Botox is injected into the muscle of the bladder. This is done right at our facilities under a local anesthetic and takes less than 20 minutes.

How quickly does it work?

Botox begins to work at about week 1, but the full effect of the medicine may take up to 2 weeks.

How long does it last?

Botox is not permanent, although it has a prolonged effect in the bladder (as long as 6-9 months) compared to other muscles where it last only a few months. For your convenience, your injections will be routinely scheduled approximately 6 months apart to allow ease of continued symptom relief from your overactive bladder.
