Abstract

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem among women worldwide. Multiple treatment modalities exist, ranging from physiotherapy to surgery. Numerous reports demonstrate mixed results for efficacy and safety of several oral agents used to treat SUI. Although there are data suggesting reasonable efficacy for several medications, surgery still remains the mainstay of treatment for most women. This article reviews the available oral agents that have been studied and assesses the data supporting their use while highlighting the limitations of each.
