Plotting Your Course

Your healthcare professional (HCP) has prescribed
Myrbetriq for you to help your symptoms of OAB
including urgency, frequency and leakage.
When starting any treatment, it's important to
know what to expect.

A good way to manage your OAB symptoms is
to follow these 3 guidelines:

1
Follow directions

Take Myrbetriq as prescribed by your doctor:

  • Swallow the tablet whole
  • Do not chew, break, or crush
    the tablet
  • If you miss a dose of Myrbetriq, begin taking Myrbetriq again the next day. Do not take 2 doses of Myrbetriq the same day
  • If you take too much Myrbetriq, call your doctor or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away

2
One time a day

It’s important that you take Myrbetriq 1 time a day as prescribed by your doctor.

  • Don't just take it when your symptoms are bothering you more than usual
  • Don't only take it if you have a big event or a long car ride

3
Stay the course

In clinical studies, it took 4-8 weeks for some patients to start seeing an improvement in OAB symptoms. Your results may vary.
