There are a number of alternative treatment options for overactive bladder. Lifestyle changes, including weight loss and avoidance of caffeine, alcohol, and carbonated beverages, may be effective in reducing symptoms. Bladder training may also be helpful. In this case, you and your doctor create a voiding schedule. At first, you may schedule yourself to urinate as frequently as every two hours, ensuring that your bladder does not become too full. Then, as you and your doctor lengthen the interval time, you can practice delaying any urges to void. Relaxation techniques may also be helpful.
