I've suffered with OAB for about 15 years and started taking Myrbetriq 3 years ago. It worked great for a while, with no side effects but stopped working several months ago. I discontinued taking it 5 days ago. I'm wondering if my body needed a break from it or should I just give up? I'm looking into non-prescription options, such as pumpkin seed extract, as I'm desperate for relief!

Hello, Suzanne! How are you? What other medications have you tried?

There are other options available to treat OAB, such as Oxybutynin. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, and urinary retention.

It is claimed that pumpkin seed extract can help, but there is no actual researched proof of it. However, it is usually not harmful to try such supplements, unless your doctor feels there is some reason they may not be safe for you.

Has anyone else tried it for OAB?

I haven't tried any other OAB meds-I have Glaucoma so the others are contraindicated. There's an over-the-counter treatment for OAB, containing pumpkin seed extract, but it also contains a form of soy, so I'm hesitant to try it. I'd rather go with the straight pumpkin seed extract. I'd love to get some feedback from anyone who tried it!
