Sudafed,or ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate): Can help to tighten bladder neck. Anticholinergics eg oxybutinin er, Detrol or vesicare (solifenacin) relax bladder musculature and may help. U should try kegel exercises 5x/day & squeezing ball between knees. Consider seeing uro-gynecologist or urologist. Urethral slings or bladder neck suspensions are extremely effective surgical procedures. Former is simple op operation with minimal morbidity. Good luck.
