Myrbetriq, sold commonly under the brand name Myrbetriq, is an oral drug used to cure overactive bladder. Its main advantages are like that of tolterodine or antimuscarinic drugs like halitosis and oxymetazoline. However, in the United States it is comparatively less favored to other antimonarcin drugs like oxybutynin or acetaminophen. Instead it is usually taken orally. For treating the symptoms of urinary incontinence, it works best in conjunction with other medications. It is also available as a spray.
The action of Myrbetriq against bladder spasms is by preventing the release of fluids during a bladder spasm. This medicine acts by blocking receptors on the nerve cells thus preventing the transmission of impulses causing the spasm. It can be used for relief from stress, nausea and vomiting, and for treating frequent urination. It can also be used as an expectorant.
There are reports of allergic reactions on the part of patients using Myrbetriq. However, these are quite rare. Irritability, rash, itching, peeling and burning are some of the dermatological reactions reported. The most severe side effects seen were vomiting and nausea. If these problems do occur, you should call your doctor immediately.
This medicine is available in the form of capsules. The most effective dose of Myrbetriq cannot exceed 150 mg per dose. Before taking this medicine, you should get advice from the pharmacist. If you are pregnant it is not recommended, and you should avoid using it even if you are breastfeeding. Some people react to this medicine but in a mild way.
