Myrbetriq

Description

Myrbetriq® is prescribed for overactive bladder treatment in both men and women. It is the only OAB treatment that targets the beta-3 pathway to increase bladder capacity. Myrbetriq works to relax the smooth muscle that surrounds the bladder and helps the bladder fill more completely, thus increasing urine storage.

  • About 1 in 3 US adults 40 years of age or older reported symptoms of overactive bladder whether it was urgency, frequency, and/or leakage.
  • Myrbetriq may include other side effects including increased blood pressure or angioedema.
  • If you have bladder outlet obstruction (BOO), Myrbetriq may increase your chances of not being able to empty your bladder.

If you have a history of high blood pressure, taking Myrbetriq may increase your blood pressure or make it worse. Regular visits to the doctor to check your blood pressure are recommended while taking Myrbetriq. As mentioned above, Myrbetriq may increase your chances of not being able to empty your bladder if you suffer from bladder outlet obstruction. Speak with your doctor or urologist immediately if you have difficulty emptying your bladder or experience a weak urine stream.

If you experience swelling of the face, lips, throat, or tongue, with or without difficulty breathing, stop taking Myrbetriq and tell your doctor right away.
