    Botox for a bladder spasam issue at night

    Does anyone have experience with BOTOX for bladder spasms? If you are under pressure more than 3 times a night and have to go urinate plus you might have a prostate issue so your stream is weak and inter stem treatments do not work. I am told that Botox is an alternative. This will need to be repeated every 6 months as it wears off.

    Hello,

    I do not have any experience with botox for bladder spasms, but this overview on bladder spasms discusses botox among other treatments whose use depends on the cause of your spasms. It states that a combination of treatments often works best.

    Best wishes,
    Atti
