OTC medicine

5 months ago

I’ve had an overactive bladder for years and it’s worse overnight. It’s a rarity to sleep the whole night through and I’m lucky if I only get up once. It’s usually 3-5 times. I never thought to see a doctor but I’m planning on doing so soon-after the holidays. In the meantime I ordered OTC medicine that consists of pumpkin seed extract and soy. It had great reviews though many people say it eventually stops working which after reading through this forum seems to happen with prescription medicine as well. Anyway, any personal experience with OTC medicine, especially the kind I ordered (seems to come in a few different brands)?
