Consult: Please consult your doctor again to know why you are having the symptoms again. Your doctor can evaluate the condition thoroughly and can give right advice.

What you eat and drink may also make it worse. Avoid acidic foods like grapefruit, tomatoes or other citrus fruits. Eat less acidic fruits like blueberries and peaches. Carbonated and caffeinated drinks also irritate the bladder as well as spicy food. It is good to be hydrated but drinking too much can cause frequency of urination and drinking too little is also causes urinary infection.

Yes: Oab symptoms can flare up and get better. There is nothing wrong with taking a holiday from the medication, but you may have to restart it in the future.

Wrong dx?: Perhaps the incontinence issue you have is not actually overactive bladder. See your urologist about this - more testing may need to be done.

A 22-year-old female asked:

Why does my doctor think that 3 months on vesicare (solifenacin) will heal my overactive bladder forever. He says it's because I am young?

OAB: It also depends on the cause of the OAB. If the underlying cause is resolved, the symptoms would not persist and so you may not need to be on vesicare (solifenacin).
