Myrbetriq (Mirabegron) is a prescription medication for adults used to treat overactive bladder with symptoms of urgency, frequency, and leakage. This medication works by relaxing a certain bladder muscle (detrusor), which helps the bladder hold more urine and lessens symptoms of overactive bladder.
We currently have the brand Myrbetriq manufactured by Astellas Pharma from Canada. It is available in the strength of 25 mg and 50 mg.
Common side effects include:
• Fast heartbeat;
Serious side effects include:
• Itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat);
• Severe dizziness;
• Trouble breathing
