You could try an anticholinergic drug (Oxybutynin, Solifenacin, Tolterodine etc) or Mirabegron which works in a slightly different way. You may even try a combination of anticholinergic and Mirabegron - could be worth discussing with your GP.

You need to be reviewed by an expert at the hospital, namely a urogynaecologist or a urologist with an interest in functional urology. You need to discuss with your GP to arrange a referral. Presumably, you have already had treatment under a specialist and potentially referral back to that specialist would be appropriate.
