My father is 70 years old. He is not diabetic but hypertensive. He had minor stroke from 7 years but now he is fine
The problem under question is Frequency and incontinent in affection of the bladder and prostate such as cystitis and prostatitis. The medication he takes is: Genurin (Flavoxate Hydrochloride 200mg). However it doesn’t give good results all the time.
My questions are
* What are the main causes for less bladder control.
* Should we add anti-inflammatory to Genurin make it more effective
* Are there more effective medications for these symptoms

If the symptoms are uncontrolled with flavoxate alone then further work up can be done keeping in mind the possibility of overactive bladder. Urinalysis, ultrasound abdomen pelvis and PSA levels can be done. Flavoxate can be replaced by detrusitol (tolterodine)to see for improvement. If there is any concomitant infection (urinary tract) then it should be treated with antibiotics. Tamsulosin can also be added if there is associated BPH.
