I have an overactive bladder, need advice?

Hi, I’m 21 years old. I saw my urologist and did an ultrasound, after the tests my doctor said I have an overactive bladder. I got it from sex with my boyfriend 5 months ago. My doctor gave me two weeks of sample packets of Myrbetriq which worked amazingly, everything finally felt normal again. But when I finished those the symptoms all came back. Since its $390 for a prescription of that my doctor put me on 5mg or Oxybutinin 2x a day. It has been 5 days and I still feel no difference. It isn’t helping at all. Will this eventually work? Or do you have any other ideas for how I can fix this? Also, are overactive bladder spasms something that will eventually go away or I’ll have this for the rest of my life? Also, I haven’t been having sex because I don’t want to make it worse, but will having sex affect this negatively?



Question: I am on a diet – lost 30 lbs – bladder now overactive – pressure and urgent to use bathroom

I’m 19 years old with what seems to be Overactive Bladder. Back around October of last year I started dieting in order to lose weight, at the time I was around 170lbs and I now weigh around 140lbs. I did not do any exercise, instead I stuck to a very limited and strict food diet. I would only eat once a day and would work 11hours straight at work without eating. My hair did start to weaken and fall out more. I am now eating normally again and maintaining my weight safely. My question is, could my diet have caused my bladder to become overactive? I cannot drink anything other than water now & my bladder is so sensitive that even if I have just 2oz in my bladder I feel the pressure & urgency to use the bathroom.
