As the baby boomer generation enters their senior years, the number of cases of male urinary incontinence is beginning to grow. In fact, urinary incontinence can affect nearly one in ten people over the age of 65.
As the cases of incontinence in the older generation have become more numerous, new medications to help treat the symptoms have begun to enter the market. Incontinence medication is usually prescribed for urge or only after behavior therapies or pelvic floor exercises have not been successful.
A few of the common incontinence medications on the market today include:
While having incontinence medication options available can offer another way to manage your symptoms, for the elderly, adding one more medication to a long daily list can cause some complications. Today’s seniors are living longer with different types of chronic conditions, relying on a wide variety of medications to help them stay healthy. Properly managing all their medications can become a chore; it’s not uncommon for a senior to take upwards of 10 different pills and essential vitamins every day.
Taking so many medications at once can not only be difficult to manage, but it can also lead to dangerous drug interactions, overmedication and serious side effects. It’s vital that if you’re considering taking an incontinence medication for your symptoms you should discuss your options with your doctor first.
