OnabotulinumtoxinA (Botox®) is a neurotoxin that makes the bladder muscles relax by blocking the transmission of nerve signals. It is used for the treatment of overactive bladder with symptoms of urinary incontinence, urgency,and frequency, in adult patients who have an inadequate response to or are intolerant of anticholinergic medication. OnabotulinumtoxinA (Botox®) is also approved for the treatment urinary Incontinence caused by neurogenic bladder associated nerve injury in adults who don’t respond to anticholinergic medications. Given by injection through an endoscope inserted into the bladder (cystoscope) under local anesthetic, Botox® takes effect within about two weeks and lasts anywhere from 36 to 42 weeks.

Re-injection can be considered when the effect diminishes but not within three months of the last injection.

Yes this can be used to give you relief from the neurogenic bladder you are suffering from.
