Real People. Real Results.
Overactive bladder (OAB), also known as overactive bladder syndrome, is a condition where there is a frequent feeling of needing to void to a degree that it negatively affects a person’s quality of life. The frequent need to urinate may occur during the day, at night, or both. Frequent urination at night is called nocturia. When there is loss of bladder control associated with a strong and compelling urge to urinate it is known as urge incontinence OAB wet. Other patients only have urinary urgency and frequency but do not experience leakage (OAB dry). More than 40% of patients with overactive bladder have incontinence. The condition is chronic. Therefore, most patients have this problem for the remaining of their life.
