In some cases, medication can help improve or relieve incontinence. Most of the time, medication is given mainly for urge incontinence. But medication may also help some cases of stress incontinence. Your doctor can discuss your options with you. Know how to take your medication correctly. Also know what side effects to expect.
Below are some types of medications that may help treat incontinence.
Anticholinergics may increase the amount of urine the bladder can hold. They may also help relax bladder muscles.
Alpha-adrenergics may help tighten the bladder neck and urethra.
Estrogen may help improve muscle tone in the urethra and bladder.
Antibiotics can treat a urinary tract infection if one is present.
