Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Based on the fact that urgency for urination without positive evidence of UTI is most likely to be due to Over Active Bladder (OAB) syndrome .

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to rule out UTI or stone disease
1) Urine culture
2) Urodynamic study of bladder
3) Ultrasound Scanning of abdomen .

Start taking Darifenacin once daily .This will help to reduce urgency for urination and frequency for urination .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you .
Thanks and Regards.
