Bethanechol is a drug that activates the bladdedr muscles to contract so that the bladder empties. Some of us, for many reasons, have problems with the bladder muscles not working 100% so that we are left with residual retention.
I have just had a successful green light laser surgery for BPH. Even so, I have had episodes of "peeing like a race horse" and other times having to bear down and push for partial emptying.
In an attempt to rule things out I had a lumbar spinal MRI performed to rule out nurological causes. No spinal problems. Therefore both my doctor and I agree that it must be failure of bladder contractions for which he has prescribed Bethanechol.
That's why I'm asking to hear from anyone who has used it and how did it work out for you?
