- Overactive bladder
I have found a common cause is over the counter supplements especially vitamins and that it takes quite a few days for these and other irritants to get out of the system to know if they are to blame.
Anticholinergics may well be very helpful for some but for many there is a difficult trade off between side effects and benefit before one adds in risks. Is there a role for prn use if say going out or a long journey?
Is there a stronger argument for stopping after 3 months to see if still needed?
If housebound and close to a toilet and other medications are piling up including anticholinergics it must make sense to stop the medications to see if they are still required.Competing Interests: None declared.
