Botulinum toxin, more commonly known as Botox, can be injected into the bladder, which can help patients with overactive bladder.
The Botox treatment is used primarily for patients who do not respond to any other treatments. Injecting Botox into the muscles of the bladder may help the bladder from contracting as often.
Botox treatment for overactive bladder tends to work quite well in stopping the bladder from contracting as much. Botox is injected into the area under local anesthesia in the office and is tolerated quite well.
