Two hundred older women with urinary incontinence were studied to observe the influence of their prescription and nonprescription drug use on symptoms of incontinence. Ninety percent of women reported using medication, with an average use of four drugs. Medications statistically associated with urinary incontinence symptomatology were prostaglandin inhibitors, diuretics, and estrogen therapy. Further studies are needed to clarify the relationship between medication usage and the presence and severity of urinary incontinence.
