How DETROL LA is thought to work

OAB symptoms can occur as a result of a number of things, one possibility involves bladder muscle control.
This can cause a strong sudden urge to urinate even when the bladder isn't full. DETROL LA works with your body's internal systems to block a process that affects your bladder muscle. That can help reduce OAB symptoms like leaks, strong sudden urges to go, and going too often.
