Overactive Bladder

An overactive bladder causes people suffering with the condition to experience a sudden and unstoppable need to urinate. It may also cause incontinence, the involuntary loss of urine.

Studies debate the exact numbers, but overactive bladder affects anywhere from 1 in 6 to an estimated 1 in 11 adults in the United States. Most men with overactive bladder are 65 and older. But women tend to be affected earlier - the prevalence rate begins to climb among women when they reach their mid-40's. In general, overactive bladder is particularly common in older adults, but is not necessarily an inevitable result of the normal aging process. That is, there are remedies available.

The symptoms of overactive bladder include frequent urination, urgency of urination, and involuntary loss of urine. Overactive bladder may cause significant social, psychological, occupational, domestic, physical, and sexual problems. While these symptoms are certainly upsetting, uncomfortable and inconvenient, it is worth stating again that they do not have to be automatically accepted as a part of aging. If you have overactive bladder, you may feel embarrassed, isolate yourself or limit your work and social life.

Patient Priority Clinical Sites is now involved in testing an investigational medication to treat the overactive bladder condition. This particular study is confined to men, but future studies involve women as well.
