Hello doctors, can a urologist subscribe a medicine for neurogenic bladder dysfunction?

Not on healthtap: The doctor who made that diagnosis should prescribe the appropriate medicine and dosage. The cause of the neurogenic bladder, the presence and amount of residual urine and other factors are to be considered. It is not just "get a prescripyion".Good luck.
