    I'm not sure if this is a permanent situation as I'm thinking it's a pseudo-exacerbation brought on by a period of very high stress.

    So, I'm going to try vesicare and go from there for now.

    Thanks for all the helpful info!

    Hi,
    I did try vesicare which is the time release...longer lasting form of detrol. I think. I also used detrol. I have been using oxybutinin for many years now. It is the generic form of detrol. The interesting thing is that the more expensive formulations never worked as well for me as oxybutinin. The less expensive form of the drug was better for me.

    That said, I am very interested in Botox.

    I always thought Vesicare and Detrol were different drugs, with Vesicare coming along more recently. I found this (from Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs, 2010):

    I happened to get this in a recent e-mail from JAMA Journal Watch. Noctiva (desmopressin) sounds to me like a new medicine for nocturia but maybe it's really just an older one dressed up to look new?

    I love the botox shots. Had it done again on Monday -- has to be repeated every 6 months - and had no problems. Took longer to do the prep than it did the actual procedure (getting undressed, on/off the table, examined by the anesthesiologist, getting "put to sleep"). In at 8:45, home by lunch. Good for another 6 months. I shoulda done this LONG ago! :)

    I had the same question as Ann - didn't Tom take you out to lunch? Glad this is one thing that is working for you. Just one step at the time.

    Thanks for the info, agate!

    Really happy the botox is working, Cat!

    Glad doctors were thinking outside the box when they saw botox's effects on facial muscles. Gives me hope that there are some bright scientific and creative minds out there!
