Suggest treatment for over active bladder

default
Posted on Thu, 12 May 2016
Question: I am hoping you can.
I have purchased D-Mannose Powder to fight my overactive bladder but it does not help to any degree.
I was perscribed: Ciproflox (without results) and had an urine test (negative). My bladder is behaving
very badly and does not give me any warning. I am eating pumpkinseeds and drinking Cranberry Juice.
I am male, 88 years old and generally in good condition.
Thanks, XXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. Well, D-Mannose powder and the other steps being taken like using ciproflox (antibiotic), cranberry juice and pumpkin seeds are are helpful in battling urinary tract infections (UTI), and if your concern is the UTI then go ahead with a urine culture and sensitivity examination. This result provides us with the following information:

+Confirms the infection
+Confirms and identifies the infection causing organism
+The urine is tested against various antibiotics, which provides us with a list of which antibiotics would be most sensitive and which will not. This helps in selecting an antibiotic that will be most effective in treating your infection.

But if your main concern is the overactive bladder, and the number of times you have been urinating and so on, then write back to me and I shall list all the available treatment options for treating an overactive bladder sir.

I hope I have explained things in a manner best understood by you. Please do not hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.

Best wishes.
