How does Enablex treat overactive bladder?

Overactive bladder (OAB) occurs when the muscles of the bladder involuntarily contract, even when the bladder is not full. This involuntary contraction sends a signal to your brain that you need to urinate, even though you may not. Voluntary and involuntary contraction of the bladder requires the stimulation of the muscarinic receptors. Enablex, a type of medication known as antimuscarinics, restores control over these muscles, reducing the need for frequent urination. Other contributing factors, such as acute urinary tract infections, high urine production, or abnormalities of the bladder may also contribute to OAB. These conditions may require specialized treatment. Your doctor will work with you to determine the underlying cause and the best treatment plan for your condition.
