Medical treatment for bladder and bowel anxieties
Several medications are available to treat the anxiety. In addition to psychological therapy, your treating medical professional may recommend psychotropic medication. A class of anti-anxiety medication called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI; e.g., Fluoxetine, Sertraline, Paroxetine, Escitalopram) may help reduce bladder and bowel anxieties. Potential use and choice of medications are best discussed with your treating medical professional.
