Incontinence Medication


Certain medications may be prescribed for you to help manage your symptoms. These include the following:

  • Antispasmodic Medications to help relax the bladder muscles and decrease the need to urinate
  • Medications to Restore the Bladder Lining such as pentosan polysulfate sodium (Elmiron)

When pain is involved:

  • Pain Medications for a short time to help ease discomfort
  • Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and Antihistamines to help reduce inflammation and relieve pain
  • Antidepressants in low doses to help relieve symptoms, perhaps by blocking pain receptors

In most cases, Stress Incontinence (the most common type of incontinence) is not effectively treated with medication. This option is usually reserved for other types of incontinence.
