Medication ceasing to work

Posted by alderton @alderton, Jun 21 6:07pm

I had a supra pubic catheter inserted last September and was put on Vesicare and Betmiga by the urologist. All was good until a few weeks ago when both medications ceased to work and I was back to having to pee every two hours – if not less – and also having bladder contractions caused by the catheter. Has anybody out there experienced similar occurrences?

Hello @alderton

I am sorry to hear that the meds you had been taking to help with spasms, have ceased to help you. On Connect, there are a couple of conversations about this type of problem. Please take a look at these discussions and see if you can find any help.

What does your doctor say about other medications that might be helpful?
