What is Betmiga?
Betmiga may reduce the symptoms of an overactive bladder. The active substance mirabegron has a relaxing effect on the bladder's muscles. You can order Betmiga online through the pharmacies working together with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medication used for?
Doctors prescribe Betmiga for an overactive bladder. The symptoms associated with this condition include:
- having to pee often;
- you are not able to hold your pee (incontinence);
- Suddenly urgent urge to pee.
An overactive bladder can adversely affect daily life. Patients who suffer from this usually prefer to stay near a toilet all day long or are ashamed of their incontinence. In an overactive bladder, the bladder muscle unintentionally pulls together, making it feel as if the bladder is full, even when this is not the case. Betmiga relaxes the overactive bladder muscle so that the bladder can contain more urine before the trigger signal is given. This reduces the complaints. These pills usually work within a few hours.
