  • Please help!! Advice needed

    I recently tried mybetriq for overactive bladder and feel that I had side effects due to another antidepressant I take for pain management-noretriptyline-the two medications can interact. I had some success with the medication but a lot of side effects that seemed to get worse over time-stomach issues, yeast infection and dry mouth that would not go away. Tried it out for five weeks. My urologist is very much about doing procedures and I would like to get someone one else, but due to COVID, this will be hard....She is more into research now. She said that I will have more side effects from the other medications for frequency but I can try them out. The next option is having a urodynamic study done for Botox-which involved two catheters bladder and bowel-with water inserted, this is apparently needed before I could get Botox. I have done pelvic floor therapy, diet modification and stress reduction and to me this seems extreme. Medication can help but I am wanting to get off and plan to try this summer to start reducing my antidepressants safety tapered with CBD oil. I would really appreciate some advice because I am unsure as to what to do at this point. Thank you

    You might want to ask your doctor or pharmacist if taking the two meds hours apart might help with interaction --- that doesn't always help with all medications, but sometimes it does --- since you feel it helped, it might be worth checking.

    Good luck! Let us know what you find out.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe
