Can Botox be injected into the bladder to treat incontinence?

According to Mayo Clinic, to treat urge incontinence or overactive bladder, a urologist can inject Botox into your bladder. This allows your muscles to relax, giving you more time to get to the toilet when you need to urinate. The injections are given in a clinic setting, and most patients handle them well. You may experience some short-term pain, which many patients equate to a menstrual cramp. The good news is that most people experience symptom relief within a few days. The effects of the treatment last about six months, and you can get more injections if needed. Urine retention is a potential side effect, and it is not recommended for men who are at risk of or have a history of enlarged prostate.
