Botox for overactive bladder

Thank you for your question jerri Bivins. Botox is a purified protein used to treat certain wrinkles on the face. The use has expanded now and it is used in other parts of the body such as in the bladder. I recommend consulting with a urologist for specific recommendations. Good luck!

I agree - a board-certified urologist would be best to answer you questions and take care of your condition

You certainly can get improvement with Botox injection for this problem. See a board certified urologist who is experienced in this technique and you should do well
