Do You Suffer From Symptoms of Incontinence?

Medication for Urinary and Fecal Incontinence

Before taking any medication for incontinence, it is important to speak to a physician. Certain medications can be a dangerous mask for a larger problem. Over-the-counter medications such as antacids and laxatives may, in fact, be making your bladder or bowel issues far worse. Consequently, if you are taking unrelated prescription medications, these could be irritating your bladder or bowel.

Fortunately, there are many forms of treatment for urinary and fecal incontinence including oral medications, patches, or creams. Before taking any medication for incontinence, it is important to speak to a physician.

Some urinary incontinence medication:

  • Anticholinergics
  • Estrogen
  • Imipramine
  • Desmopressin

Some medications for bowel incontinence include:

  • Anti-diarrheal medication
  • Metamucil
