About Overactive Bladder (OAB)

Approximately U.S. adults 40 years of age and older reported symptoms of OAB at least "sometimes."

OAB symptoms affect millions of American adults

If your healthcare professional (HCP) tells you that you have OAB, you are not alone. As many as 46 million Americans 40 years of age or older reported OAB symptoms.

Men and women with OAB experience symptoms such as a sudden urgency to urinate that is frequent and cannot be controlled. These uncontrollable urges to urinate can sometimes lead to leakage – accidental wetting.

According to the American Urological Association (AUA), which is a leading advocate for the specialty of urology, the lack of bladder control may affect a person’s daily activities.

Many people with OAB just learn to cope with their condition, rather than talk to their HCP about it, because they are embarrassed or think it can’t be treated. They plan their daily activities around being close to bathrooms to avoid urine leaks and accidents.

How does OAB happen?

Urges and leaks can happen when communication between your bladder and brain tell you it's time to urinate before your bladder is full. This can also happen when your bladder muscle is too active.

Either way, your bladder muscle contracts too early, causing the bladder to empty before it should. This causes the sudden urge to urinate and may lead to frequent urination.

Bladder muscle contracts to pass urine before the bladder is full.

Symptoms of Overactive Bladder (OAB)

Do you know what overactive bladder symptoms to look for?

The American Urological Association (AUA) identifies the major symptom of OAB as a sudden, strong urge to urinate that you can't control. This urge may cause you to constantly cope with the need to use the bathroom, or you may have wetting accidents. When a person has some or all of the following symptoms, an OAB treatment option may be prescribed by a healthcare professional:

Taking an Active Role in Your
Overactive Bladder (OAB) Treatment

Working with your doctor and staying informed about your treatment is key to managing your OAB symptoms

Having an ongoing and honest talk with your healthcare professional (HCP) is one of the most important steps you can take. Be sure to tell your HCP in a detailed way how your OAB symptoms affect you.

Your HCP may suggest a treatment plan for you that may include taking a prescription medicine for OAB. You should follow the prescription instructions exactly as they are written. It is also important that you ask your HCP about what you can expect from any prescribed medicine. Along with the medicine you may be prescribed to take, you may also benefit from making certain lifestyle changes.

Learn about a treatment option
  • Food and drink

    Talk with your HCP about how you should manage your fluid intake throughout the day and how much you should drink before bedtime. Try to avoid spicy, citrus, and tomato-based foods, which can irritate your bladder. Plain water and non‑citrus fruits (such as apricots, papayas, watermelons, and pears), are all good choices for people with OAB.

  • Caffeine

    Limiting drinks with caffeine – such as coffee and some soft drinks – may reduce the frequency of needing to urinate.

  • Weight management

    Being overweight puts extra pressure on your bladder. Even losing a small amount of weight with diet and exercise may help ease OAB symptoms. You should always talk to your HCP before starting any weight loss or exercise program.

  • Pelvic exercises

    Performing pelvic exercises can help strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, which are important for holding urine in the bladder and may prevent leakage. These bladder control exercises are also called “Kegel” exercises. Talk to your HCP for more information.
