Advanced Treatment for Overactive Bladder – Bladder Injections

In some cases of refractory overactive bladder, injecting Botox directly into the bladder muscles has been found to be effective in relieving OAB symptoms. Used in small doses, Botox relaxes the bladder muscles, helping to minimize frequent bladder contractions.

Botox injections were approved by the FDA to treat adults with OAB who cannot use or do not respond to medications known as anticholinergics. Botox injections typically last six to nine months and will need to be repeated to minimize symptoms of OAB.

Risks Associated with Botox Injections:

Botox injections carry a risk of urinary retention and worsening bladder emptying in older adults and individuals with medical conditions such as diabetes. If Botox injections are prescribed, your doctor will follow you closely to monitor possible side effects including urinary tract infections and urine retention.
