Answer

Answer

Antispasticity drugs, such as diazepam and baclofen, also have been used in upper motor neuron dysfunction. As a rule, calcium channel blockers are not used therapeutically for uninhibited contractions, but in theory, they should be effective. Interest has increased in the use of botulinum toxin to treat the overactive bladder in demyelinating diseases and to address detrusor overactivity after spinal cord injury. [41]
