Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
In patients with overactive bladder (OAB)^ or urge incontinence^ how well do medications work and are any of them better?

Bottom-line:
Both anticholinergic drugs and placebo improve overactive bladder^ although medications slightly more (about 1⁄2 a trip less to the bathroom/day). The drugs oxybutynin^ tolterodine^ solifenacin and darifenacin are very similar in efficacy while adverse events (dry mouth and likely constipation) vary.
