How VESIcare works
VESIcare is thought to help control the bladder muscle
It's all about what's going on with your internal plumbing. That's because a normal bladder and an overactive bladder don't always work the same way. Here's what happens:
With an overactive bladder, your bladder muscle contracts before your bladder expands to its full size, making it work overtime. This can make you feel those frequent urges and leaks you might be experiencing. In other words, your internal plumbing doesn't always work the way it should.
Medications like VESIcare are thought to work by interacting with natural body chemicals that cause the bladder muscle to contract.
