1. Medication

There are lots of home remedies out there, but sometimes they just don't do the trick. That's when medicine - both over-the-counter and prescribed – comes in handy. This is usually a decision that is reserved for people with a more severe overactive bladder. Talk to your doctor about drugs: he or she may not recommend medication for everyone. If you do receive a prescription, it will most likely be some form of a medication that blocks the production of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, which helps to control the muscle spasms in the bladder. It thus provides for a deep feeling of relief, which lasts for a long time. Consult your doctor for more information.
