overactive bladder

Are there any natural health products that help to quieten down an overactive bladder. Medication has not worked. How can I distinguish the symptoms from enlarged prostate. Should I continue with Tamulosin. Will it make any difference to frequency long term
Thanks

Re: overactive bladder

If you have had bladder outlet obstruction diagnosed (presuming this because you are on Tamsulosin) then this can be a cause of the symptoms you describe. Saw palmetto is a natural product that may shrink the prostate and reduce your symptoms but the evidence to support its use is patchy. In about 2/3 of cases, adequate treatment of bladder outlet obstruction due to prostatic enlargement will reduce the kind of symptoms you describe.
