Last year I plucked up the courage to talk to my GP and was subsequently diagnosed with OAB and urge incontinence. I took a combination of detrusitol and citalopram while bladder training. This seemed to work over time and eventually (when at an easily managed level) I weaned off the medication. However over the subsequent days/weeks it returned to the same levels as before and I am reluctant to go back to my GP as he didn’t make me feel comfortable talking about originally. So my question is, is it normal for it to come back like this? And what is the best course of action now?
Hi, yes GP suggested that it is triggered through anxiety (which I have plenty of) and made worse by my weight and diet (especially drinks). However I have already lost over a stone in weight and am still fighting the good fight, I have cut out fizzy drinks to almost zero and only have alcohol on rare occasions. The only thing I cannot seem to reduce is stress and anxiety.
