Talking With Your Healthcare Professional

An open and honest discussion is your first step

Overactive bladder (OAB) is a medical condition that can be managed through lifestyle changes and/or prescription medicine. If you think you may have OAB, make an appointment to see your healthcare professional (HCP).

Having an open and honest talk with your healthcare professional is an important part of working towards managing your OAB. Keeping a detailed record of your symptoms may help you find it easier to share them with your HCP, and to describe how they are affecting you.

During your visit with your HCP, bring up the subject of your bladder symptoms early in your talk so that you have time to discuss treatment options. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Here are some more ways you can make the most of your visits with your HCP:

Be proactive.

Make a special appointment to discuss your OAB symptoms, or raise the issue early in your healthcare visit, so your HCP knows how you feel.


Be persistent.

Let your HCP know that managing your OAB symptoms is important to you. If you don’t succeed the first time in letting your HCP know how OAB affects you, try again.


Be precise.

When talking to your doctor, it’s important not to downplay your symptoms. Keep a written record of your fluid intake, the number of times you urinate, and the number of accidents you have and when they occur.

OAB: Talking to Your Healthcare Professional

There are several types of HCPs that you can talk to about your bladder symptoms, including your primary care physician, OB/GYN, urologist, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, and pharmacist. Hear from National OAB educator and Nurse Practitioner Diane Newman, DNP, on speaking up about your OAB symptoms.

Getting Started With Myrbetriq

Ongoing communication is key to managing your treatment

Your healthcare professional (HCP) may prescribe Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) for you to help your symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB) including frequency and leakage. In clinical trials, those taking Myrbetriq made fewer trips to the bathroom and had fewer leaks than those not taking Myrbetriq. Your results may vary.

When you start taking Myrbetriq, it is important that you talk with your healthcare professional on an ongoing basis. Keep the lines of communication open. Share how it is working for you. Ask questions. Talk about your treatment expectations. Another good way to manage your OAB symptoms is to follow these 3 rules.

1
Follow directions

If your HCP has prescribed Myrbetriq, take it as prescribed and swallow the tablet whole. Do not crush, chew, or divide the tablet.

2
Think "daily"

It is important that you take Myrbetriq once daily or as prescribed by your HCP. Don't take your medicine only when your symptoms are especially bothersome, or when you're about to have a big event or take a long car ride.

3
Be patient

It may take several weeks to see results with Myrbetriq, so stick with it. In clinical trials, those taking Myrbetriq made fewer trips to the bathroom and had fewer leaks than those not taking Myrbetriq. Your results may vary.
