FDA Approves Botox for UI


A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Botox had been approved by the European Union for the treatment of urinary incontinence (UI) for individuals with spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis. Well, it appears the FDA has now followed suit.

Last Wednesday, the FDA approved Botox for the same indication in individuals who react negatively or insufficiently to anticholinergic medication. The approval only relates to Botox, and no other products that are similar in formula (such as Dysport). It’s more great news for Botox and the manufacturer, Allergan.

Urinary incontinence is a common problem in North America, with millions of people affected worldwide. When associated with neurological disorders, the condition is even more common and extremely difficult to manage. This is a result of the neurological condition disrupting the nerve signals controlling the bladder. Botox has been used for years as an off-label treatment for UI in patients with multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury to control these nerve signals, thereby relaxing the bladder and increasing  its capacity.

The treatment is long lasting but not without its risks. Some rare risks include urinary tract infection and urinary retention, both of which are treatable.
