Miscellaneous Drugs

The miscellaneous drugs are used to relieve the symptoms associated with an overactive bladder (involuntary contractions of the detrusor or bladder muscle)

that sometimes occur due to disorders such as cystitis, prostatitis, or other affected structures such as the kidney or the urethra. Overactive bladder is estimated to affect more than 16 million individuals in the United States. Symptoms of an overactive bladder include urinary urgency, frequent urination day and night, and urge incontinence, accidental loss of urine caused by a sudden and unstoppable need to urinate. These drugs also help control the discomfort associated with irritation of the lower urinary tract mucosa caused by infection, trauma, surgery, and endoscopic procedures. Other miscellaneous drugs are used to relieve the pain associated with irritation of the lower genitourinary tract (eg, phenazopyridine) caused by infection, trauma, surgery, and endoscopic procedures.
