I have been having heavy bladder leakage and advised my gynecologist. She prescribed something called Vesicare 5 mg tablets. I must mention I am unemployed and have not insurance. This 30 day of Vesicare costs $298.00. Of course with no job or insurance I cannot afford this. I have also tried something over the counter, Oxytrol, or something like that, it is a patch. Did not work. My gynecologist said maybe I should see a urologist. What do you think? this is stress incontinence, and is very much a bother, and uncomfortable.

Thanks for this question

I'm Dr. Phil and I'm happy to help.

vesicare is a good option but there are much cheaper options you can take.

I would recommend detrol. It is older, much cheaper and does the same thing

Also, kegel exercises can help a lot. Here is a link

I think seeing a urologist is a good idea as well

They have many things they can do for this

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
