    Please I need help! My dr gave me free samples of Myrebetriq but I am almost out. Too expensive. Thee is a depression medicine: Imipramine that works but it keeps me so tired. Has anyone heard of CELEXA being used for overactive bladder? Please anything you tell me will be appreciated.

    Hi. I have not heard of Celexa being used for overactive bladder, but I would not be surprised if it were. This is because I have taken Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, and Cymbalta, and all of them interfere with my urinary tract. In my case the first 3 cause me to urinate more frequently, but much less urine each time. It got so bad on Effexor that the urine just came out drip by drip and it took 10 minutes to urinate. (I stopped taking it.) Cymbalta on the other hand caused me to urinate about every 20 minutes awake or asleep. (I stopped taking it.)
    I know you are asking about overactive bladder, which these drugs would just make worse if they worked on you like they did on me. However, I have heard about anti-depressants having opposite effects on different people, so there could be something to the Celexa report. Sorry I am not answering your question directly.
    Best regards.
