Nice | Urinary incontinence in women

25th September 2013 by Louise Hudman

This new guideline on urinary incontinence in women updates advice on which medications to use.

Drugs used in managing incontinence

Oxybutynin (immediate release – IR), Tolterodine IR and Darifenacin (once daily) should be used first-line.

When trying a new medication, warn the patient that it can take 4/52 to be effective. Pick the lowest cost alternative to try next. If oral drugs can’t be tolerated, patches can be tried. They advise to avoid Oxybutynin IR in frail elderly women.
