Answer

Antidepressants, Serotonin/Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors

Some agents in this class may improve stress incontinence

Duloxetine (Cymbalta)

Duloxetine is a potent inhibitor of neuronal serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake. Its antidepressive action is theorized to be due to serotonergic and noradrenergic potentiation in the CNS.
