Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

We assessed clinical and urodynamic effects of solifenacin versus mirabegron in women with overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

Eighty women with OAB were randomized into 2 groups. In group A, the patients received solifenacin 5 mg once a day for 12 weeks; in group B, the patients received mirabegron 50 mg once a day for 12 weeks. Symptoms were assessed with OAB Symptom Score (OABSS). Patients underwent urodynamic investigation with pressure flow study. OABSS and urodynamic study were performed before and after treatment.

RESULTS:

Both solifenacin and mirabegron were effective in improving OAB symptoms. Mirabegron showed greater tolerability with fewer patients discontinuing therapy because of side effects. Both solifenacin and mirabegron were effective in improving the storage function in the pressure flow study, but solifenacin showed a significant reduction of the detrusor pressure in the voiding phase with an increase in the postvoid residual urine volume.

CONCLUSIONS:

Mirabegron has shown to be a drug with the better balance between efficacy and tolerability in women with OAB.
