Myrbetriq Helps Treat the Following Conditions:
An overactive bladder includes the following effects: a strong sudden urge to urinate, frequent urination, and – in some cases – incontinence. It is caused by involuntary contractions of the bladder, creating the urge to urinate, even when the actual amount of urine in the bladder is low.
Aging, diabetes, loss of cognitive function, and an enlarged prostate (in men) are thought to contribute to developing these symptoms.
Myrbetriq Active Ingredient
Myrbetriq contains the active ingredient mirabegron ER, which helps to relax the detrusor, a muscle in the bladder. This allows more urine to be stored in the bladder without experiencing the urge to urinate frequently.

Mirabegron Shows Superior Patient Adherence
According to British researchers, patients with overactive bladders who are prescribed mirabegron remain on treatment longer than those prescribed traditional antimuscarinic medications.
Published in European Urology, the 12-month observational study was conducted among 21,996 participants. Researchers compared mirabegron, the active ingredient in the brand-name drug Myrbetriq, with tolterodine ER, solifenacin, darifenacin, fesoterodine, along with other antimuscarinics.
Patients were able to use mirabegron an average of 169 days, compared to 56 days for tolterodine ER. The range for other antimuscarinic medications was between 30 to 78 days.
