can work on a solution to help treat your symptoms.

Questions to ask about treatment
If you have been diagnosed with OAB, you and your OAB treatment provider
may decide to start treatment. Here are some questions about treatment to
talk over with an OAB treatment provider:

- How often do I need to take this medication?
- What side effects can I expect?

OAB symptoms can be embarrassing, but there’s a treatment that may help.
