User avatar I am not particularly familiar with this condition and its treatment but I can offer a few suggestions.

There are other medications that can be used such as tolterodine (Brand name Detrol) if you are unable to use the ditropan. Also muscle strengthening exercises known as kegels can help some. Kegels are essentially just repeated contraction of the muscle you would used to stop urination. (Do not perform these while urinating.) Usually, one would start with 10 contractions per set. The muscle is contracted and held for a few seconds then relaxed. Start with 1 set 3-4 times per day and work up until several sets can be done at a time several times per day.

Seeing your urologist will be helpful to get a more specific plan for you.

Best wishes.
