Answer

Answer

The role of pharmacologic therapy in neurogenic bladder, and the selection of drugs, varies with the type of neurogenic bladder. Pharmacologic therapy for overactive bladder may be most effective when combined with a pelvic exercise regimen. The 3 main categories of drugs used to treat urge incontinence include anticholinergic drugs, antispasmodics, and tricyclic antidepressants.
