Best Homeopathic Remedies for an Overactive Bladder

What is an Overactive Bladder?

An overactive bladder refers to a condition where there is a frequent, sudden and unstoppable urge to urinate. This urge to urinate may occur only during the day or during the night; or both. The urinary bladder is a sac-like muscular organ. It stores urine produced by the kidneys until it passes out of the body through the urethra. When the urinary bladder fills up completely, there is an exchange of a series of nerve signals between the urinary bladder, the brain, and the pelvic floor. The coordination between these nerve signals makes the detrusor muscle of the bladder contract, the pelvic floor and the external sphincter of the bladder relax, and helps the urine to drain out. In the case of an overactive bladder, the bladder muscles contract involuntarily and make the person feel the need to pass urine even when the bladder is only slightly filled. The problem with an overactive bladder can be treated very effectively with homeopathy. The homeopathic treatment for an overactive bladder helps by curing the cause of the problem. The selection of medicines for an overactive bladder should be made based on a complete symptom picture of the individual case. This treatment is completely safe and works wonderfully to give symptomatic relief to the patient.

What are the Causes of an Overactive Bladder?

The exact cause for an overactive bladder is not known. However, the chances of getting an overactive bladder increase with age. Other risk factors include obesity, menopause, an enlarged prostate gland, and poorly controlled diabetes. Intake of alcohol and caffeine may worsen the symptoms of an overactive bladder. Some of the other conditions and factors contributing to the symptoms of an overactive bladder are an increase in fluid intake, urinary tract infections, bladder stones, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and medicines that increase urinary output.

Symptoms of an Overactive Bladder

The primary symptom of an overactive bladder is a sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate. Other symptoms include a frequent desire to urinate and an involuntary passage of urine, also known as urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence in cases of an overactive bladder is mainly urge incontinence; which means the involuntary passage of urine that occurs when a person does not promptly attend to the sudden, strong urge to urinate.

Homeopathic Treatment for an Overactive Bladder

Some of the top medicines for the homeopathic treatment for an overactive bladder are Kreosotum, Lycopodium Clavatum, Merc Sol, Causticum, Phosphoric Acid, Equisetum Hyemale, and Sepia Succus. A patient should avoid self-medication and consult a physician for the homeopathic treatment for an overactive bladder.

1. Kreosotum – Homeopathic Medicine for an Overactive Bladder with a Sudden Urge to Urinate

Kreosotum is an effective homeopathic medicine for an overactive bladder with a sudden urge to urinate. In such cases, the patient needs to hurry to urinate whenever the urge arises. The frequency of urination is also high. Usually, urine is also highly offensive. Kreosotum is also used in cases where there is involuntary urination on lying down or on coughing.

2. Lycopodium Clavatum – Homeopathic Medicine for an Overactive Bladder with Frequent Urination at Night

Lycopodium Clavatum is an effective homeopathic medicine for an overactive bladder in cases of frequent urination at night. The quantity of urine in such cases is also very high. There is a feeling of bearing down on the bladder region along with the need to wake up at night because of the urge to urinate. Stitching pain in the bladder is also present in some cases. Lycopodium Clavatum is also helpful in cases of an overactive bladder in males suffering from prostate enlargement.

3. Merc Sol – Homeopathic Medicine for an Overactive Bladder with Frequent Urination During the Day and Night

Merc Sol is an excellent homeopathic medicine for an overactive bladder in cases where there is frequent urination during the day and at night. Every time the urge to urinate arises, the person has to hurry. Any delay causes the urine to leak involuntarily. The urine flow may be scanty or profuse. In some cases, there is a feeling of soreness in the bladder.

4. Causticum – Homeopathic Medicine for an Overactive Bladder with Involuntary Passage of Urine or Urinary Incontinence

Causticum is a beneficial homeopathic medicine for an overactive bladder in cases where there is an involuntary flow of urine. This symptom can cause a lot of problems when it occurs at night or if the patient is walking. Causticum also helps in strengthening the bladder sphincter and in controlling urinary incontinence.

5. Phosphoric Acid and Equisetum Hyemale – Homeopathic Medicine for an Overactive Bladder with Frequent and Profuse Urination

Phosphoric Acid and Equisetum Hyemale are good homeopathic medicines for an overactive bladder in cases of frequent and large quantities of urination. Phosphoric Acid is helpful when a person passes large amounts of clear, watery urine, mostly at night. Weakness may also occur. Equisetum Hyemale is useful when there is a constant feeling of fullness in the urinary bladder. The person passes a large quantity of urine very often, but the fullness is not relieved. Sometimes urine is passed involuntarily both in the day and at night.

6. Sepia Succus – Homeopathic Medicine for an Overactive Bladder in Females

Sepia Succus is a good homeopathic treatment for an overactive bladder in women. It is useful when a female has a sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate. There is a constant bearing down sensation above the pubis. In most cases, the urine is foul smelling and may contain sediments.

    I have bladder weakness since very young age. Now I am 62 years old and experience frequent urination, sometimes even after half an hour. At night I have no problem and may not even feel the urge to urinate more than once, or may not even once. I also take allopathic medicines for high blood pressure and find these too have diuretic effect. I tried sabal pentarkan but then also there is high urination frequency and quantity wise. Please help me with the treatment. Many years back I had stone in my kidney which was removed through lithotripsy and then I took some homeopathic medicine and since then no problem. Otherwise I am quite active and in good shape and health. Please suggest me the medicine.

      Dear Dr Sharma:

      I am 62 years. When I was 55 years, I have been operated for an enlarged prostate, and after an year for BNI as the urine flow was not satisfactory. But since then I have been suffering burning pain in urethra before passing urine. When I get gas filled or stools in my recturm, rectum is pressing the prostate gland and I get pain in urethra and urge to urinate either it is day or night which happens in an interval of 1 to 1 1/2 hour frequency. Allopathic doctors are treating it with Alpha blockers and pain killers but I find no permanent relief except temporary. At times I am also getting UTI and treating with antibiotics. Kindly suggest a remedy in homeopathy with dosage to have a satisfactory permanent cure. I will be grateful to your kind respose. Regards, Mohan Sharma
