Abstract
Although most studies of overactive bladder (OAB) have investigated older patients, many younger women suffer from OAB syndrome with and without urge urinary incontinence. OAB in these women is associated with an increased risk of depression, sexual dysfunction, sleep disruption, and lost productivity in the workplace. Many patients adopt coping strategies rather than seeking treatment; therefore, available treatments are underused in this population.
