Dear Mrs Naidoo

I would advise a consultation with a Urologist, to ensure the correct diagnosis has been made, and there are no treatable causes for your symptoms. Should you not respond to Vesicare, 2nd line treatment with Betmiga can be tried. Thereafter, sacral neuromodulation and intravesical botox are 3rd line options.
Kind regards
