Urinary incontinence (UI) is a major problem especially to the elderly. The only absolute indications for drug therapy in this condition are infection and atrophic urethritis. Other causes of UI should be treated with behavioural remedies and physiotherapy. If these measures are impractical or fail to improve the condition, then we would recommend additional drug therapy.
