Myrbetriq is a brand-name medication prescribed for overactive bladder (OAB) in adults and neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) in children 3 years and up. In the United States, generic Myrbetriq is currently unavailable. Luckily, My Drug Center is a Canadian pharmacy that carries generic Myrbetriq in addition to its brand-name version to help you save on your treatment. Generic Myrbetriq is called mirabegron. It contains the same active ingredient as brand-name Myrbetriq, just at a fraction of the price.
Myrbetriq is primarily used to manage symptoms associated with an overactive bladder, a condition where bladder muscles contract uncontrollably and cause urgent urination, frequent urination, and incontinence. Generic mirabegron comes as an extended-release tablet for oral administration and can be used alone or with another medication, depending on your doctor's directions. Mirabegron is an antispasmodic, a class of drugs that suppresses muscle spasms. Specifically, it works by activating the Beta-3 adrenergic receptor in the bladder, which increases bladder capacity and relaxes the bladder.
As mentioned, generic mirabegron is also used to treat neurogenic detrusor overactivity in children and adolescents 3 years and older. This condition occurs due to damage to the nerves supplying the detrusor muscle. Disruptions to these nerves cause involuntary contractions and abnormal bladder activity. Studies show that Myrbetriq is effective and well-tolerated in pediatric patients with NDO.
Like other drugs without a generic version, Myrbetriq can be expensive in the U.S. Fortunately, you can save on Myrbetriq by getting a generic version from Canada. Generic mirabegron has already been approved in many countries outside of the U.S. If you prefer to order brand-name Myrbetriq, My Drug Center can also help you save.
Myrbetriq is significantly cheaper online through My Drug Center than your local pharmacy because we can source generic mirabegron from reputable pharmacies internationally. Generic versions use the same active ingredient, so there is no need to worry about different efficacy or safety profiles. Going the generic route is a common and safe way to save on your prescription. Despite being considerably more affordable, generic versions do not sacrifice effectiveness. While the different inactive ingredients may cause generic mirabegron to have a different appearance, inactive ingredients do not significantly affect the benefits of Myrbetriq.
Even if you do not go the generic route, getting your medication from Canada through My Drug Center can still help you save. This is because many regulations across the border aim to keep drug prices low and accessible. By using My Drug Center, you join thousands of Americans who are benefiting from these regulations by getting brand-name Myrbetriq from outside of the U.S. With generic, brand-name, and different dosage options to choose from, joining a Canadian pharmacy like My Drug Center can be an important step to accessing affordable treatment.
Myrbetriq is available in two dosage strengths of 25 mg and 50 mg. Patients with more severe conditions are commonly prescribed Myrbetriq 50 mg, the maximum dosage for this medication. Myrbetriq 50 mg is typically taken once a day if symptoms do not improve after four to eight weeks of Myrbetriq 25 mg.
Myrbetriq 25 mg
The 25 mg dosage strength is the typical starting recommendation for patients with overactive bladder syndrome. A 25 mg tablet is usually taken once a day for up to eight weeks. If symptoms persist, your doctor may up your dosage. Because Myrbetriq is meant for the long-term treatment of bladder symptoms, regular use is required to maximize effectiveness.
If you miss a dose, do not panic. Take the missed dose as soon as you remember and within 12 hours of your scheduled dosing time. Skip the missed dose if you are more than 12 hours past your scheduled dosing time and continue with your usual schedule. Avoid taking extra doses to make up for the missed dose. Taking Myrbetriq at the same time every day or using a medication reminder are good ways to remember your dose.
