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.

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
