Answer

If behavioral therapy fails or the child has severe symptoms, pharmacologic therapy is instituted. Although pharmacologic therapy is one of the mainstays in the treatment of adult OAB and the management of neurogenic detrusor overactivity, its role in the treatment of idiopathic OAB in children is less well defined.
