Nice | Mirabegron for overactive bladder syndrome (OAB)

16th July 2013 by Louise Hudman

This guideline looks at a new drug, Mirabegron. It can be used for frequency, urgency and incontinence in OAB, if antimuscarinics are not suitable, or are not effective. They do advise that it’s use should be seen as part of a treatment pathway, including bladder retraining.

It is a beta-3 adrenoreceptor agonist, which activates the receptors to allow the bladder to relax, allowing it to store more urine.

"We have used LocumDeck for a number of months now and find it really useful when booking locums. You can see the availability of GPs, their documents are all loaded on the site and you can book instantly – it takes minutes to do. There are also no expensive locum agency fees to pay – just the GP’s actual payment. It's quick and hassle-free."
