Overactive Bladder

Overactive Bladder (OAB) is a common urinary condition affecting men and women alike. Symptoms include the uncontrollable urge to urinate, frequent daytime urination and getting up at night to urinate. It is common for these symptoms to be accompanied by leakage of urine (urinary incontinence). These symptoms can cause undesired changes in the work environment, social settings and lead to an overall decrease in quality of life.
