A study funded by the National Institute Child Health and Human Development shows that anticholinergic drugs and onabotulinumtoxinA injections produce comparable results in women with urgency urinary incontinence. Choice of therapy, say the researchers, should take into consideration route of administration and adverse effect profiles.
The results are from a double-blind, double-placebo–controlled, randomized trial involving women with idiopathic urgency urinary incontinence experiencing 5 or more episodes of urgency urinary incontinence per 3-day period, as recorded in a diary.
