19 Nov End oab pill purgatory
Have you taken OAB medications and stopped after a period of time? Did the medication not control your symptoms well enough? Was it horribly expensive if it did actually work? Did it cause dry mouth, dry eyes or constipation? Is the medication linked to dementia? Did the medication cause increased blood pressure or headaches? If any of the above have ever been experienced did your provider mention alternative treatments beyond another medication to try? You are not alone. In a clinical study, it was noted that 82% of patients stop taking their OAB medications at 12 months. Remember, there may be more treatment options for you. If medications have not worked to reduce your OAB symptoms, there are more advanced therapies that may help. Make sure you find an OAB specialist who offers a Care Pathway with multiple options for your OAB. Providers that offer choice increase use of 3rd line therapies from 3% to 16.5%.* Use of a Care Pathway reduces attrition and decreases time to delivery of a 3rd line therapy. Do not be the 65 to 79% of OAB patients suffering with no therapy.
