What is Myrbetriq® (mirabegron)?

why myrbetriq for overactive bladder treatment, oab

If you have OAB symptoms of urgency, frequency and leakage, ask your healthcare professional (HCP) if Myrbetriq may be right for you.

Myrbetriq is the first and only OAB treatment in its class

Myrbetriq is a prescription medicine approved
by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
It is used to treat the OAB symptoms of urgency,
frequency and leakage in adults.

In clinical studies, patients taking Myrbetriq versus those not taking it:

  • had improvement in their OAB symptoms within the first 4 to 8 weeks
  • made fewer trips to the bathroom and had fewer leaks

Your results may vary.

If you have OAB symptoms of urgency, frequency and leakage, ask your healthcare professional (HCP) if Myrbetriq may be right for you.

How Does Myrbetriq Work?

With OAB, the bladder muscle suddenly contracts before the bladder is full. This causes frequent and sudden urges to urinate that may be uncontrollable. These urges can sometimes lead to leakage or accidental wetting.

Myrbetriq is the only OAB treatment in its class. When taken as directed, it can help relax the smooth muscle that surrounds the bladder and increase the bladder's ability to store urine.

Your doctor may prescribe Myrbetriq if you:

  • Take too many trips to the bathroom
  • Have frequent leaks and accidents
  • Have already tried other treatment options
