Women’s Excellence now offers BOTOX®, which is approved to treat Overactive Bladder (OAB) symptoms, such as a strong need to urinate with leakage, urgency and frequency in adults when another type of medication (anticholinergic) does not work well enough or cannot be taken. This is a different treatment option that takes another approach to targeting the source of OAB, the bladder muscle itself.

BOTOX® works on the nerves and bladder muscle, blocking the signals that trigger OAB. In the body, certain chemicals travel from nerve cells to muscle cells to make the bladder contract so that people can urinate. With OAB, these muscles contract uncontrollably and make people feel like they have to empty their bladder.

BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that is injected into the bladder muscle and used to treat overactive bladder symptoms such as a strong need to urinate with leaking or wetting accidents (urge urinary incontinence), a strong need to urinate right away (urgency), and urinating often (frequency) in adults 18 years and older when another type of medicine does not work well enough or cannot be taken.
