    Myrbetriq

    GENERIC NAME(S): MIRABEGRON

    Uses

    This medication is used to treat overactive bladder. Overactive bladder is a problem with how your bladder stores urine that causes a sudden urge to urinate. The urge may be hard to control, and overactive bladder symptoms may include frequent urination, strong sudden urges to urinate, or involuntary loss of urine (incontinence). Mirabegron works by relaxing a certain bladder muscle (detrusor), which helps the bladder hold more urine and lessens symptoms of overactive bladder.

    How to use Myrbetriq

    Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking mirabegron and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

    Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Swallow this medication whole. Do not crush, chew, or divide the medication. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects.

    The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

    Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

    Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

    Side Effects

    Nausea, dizziness, fast heartbeat, or headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

    Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
