Which is good for an overactive bladder besides prescription detrol (tolterodine)?

Medical + nonmedical. In addition to Detrol (tolterodine) (instead of) there are many, many different "anti-cholinergic" medications that have a fewer side effects (but they may be more expensive or not covered by your insurance). There are also nonmedical aids, including avoiding certain types of foods and bladder stimulants (eg, caffeine) and timed voiding (keep you bladder less full). Discuss with your doctor.

Not a good idea. They are the same class of medicine (antocholinergic) and both work in pretty much the same way, by reducing spasm of the muscle that contracts to push urine out of the bladder. Taken in excess they can actually cause incontenence by paralysis of that muscle (overflow incontenence). If the meds are not working you should see a urologist. You can have systemic side effects with too much meds. Read more...
