Drugs Available for Overactive Bladder Symptoms

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Yesterday evening I was putting together an updated list of drugs that are currently available for overactive bladder (also called urge incontinence), when the phone rang. It was my newlywed daughter; we visited for a while and then she had to get going. As I looked down at my list again, I was struck by 3 facts:

FACT No. 1: There are only 3 drugs on the list–out of 11 drugs that are marketed for bladder control– that are available as a generic medication. The rest are only available as the brand name product.

FACT No. 2: All 3 of the medicines that are available as a generic have the exact same ingredient: oxybutynin.

FACT No. 3: Except for the generic form of oxybutynin available as 5mg tablets (Note: I am NOT talking about the extended release 5mg tablet) or as the syrup viagra indiaWow! Are these drugs EXPENSIVE!

Oxybutynin is an old, old drug that still is used for bladder spasms and urge incontinence. Urge incontinence, also called OAB (or an overactive bladder), is a type of urinary incontinence when you have to go but can’t hold it long enough to get to a bathroom in time.

Even with generic extended release oxybutynin you’ll experience some shock at these prices unless you are lucky enough to have insurance that covers brand name drugs. But even then, your copay may be over $50 per month.

I finished the list and it’s ready to share with you. Click here to get it as a PDF: Drugs Available for Overactive Bladder Symptoms (PDF), then stop back by and tell me what you think about it.
Warm Regards,
Dr. Louise
