Frequently asked questions for Mirabegron

Mirabegron

Q. How long does it take for Mirabegron to show its effects?

You may see the full benefits of Mirabegron after 8 weeks of starting the treatment or longer. Depending on how well the medicine suits and affects the patient, the dose can be increased after 4-8 weeks.

Q. Can I stop taking Mirabegron if I start feeling better?

No, do not stop taking Mirabegron even if you start feeling better. This medicine does not cure overactive bladder but relieves the symptoms of urgency, frequency and incontinence (unable to control when you empty your bladder). Stopping treatment may result in a recurrence of the symptoms of overactive bladder.

Q. Does Mirabegron cause loss of sleep?

No, Mirabegron does not affect your sleep. However, if you are having any problems related to your sleep, talk to your doctor.

Q. What is the effect of Mirabegron in children?

It is best to avoid the use of Mirabegron in children because its effectiveness and side effects in children (age < 18 years) have not been studied yet.

Q. Can I take Mirabegron off and on?

No, you need to take it daily as directed by your doctor since it controls your condition and does not cure it. Your bladder takes time to adapt to the medicine, so if you take it off and on, you will not get the desired benefits and your symptoms will recur.

Q. Does Mirabegron affect the kidneys?

Infection of kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder or urethra is a common side effect of Mirabegron but does not affect everyone. Very few patients have reported of developing renal stones and bladder pain with the use of Mirabegron. Also, patients with compromised kidney function should be careful while using Mirabegron and report any unwanted symptoms related to kidneys to the consulting doctor.

Q. Do I need to be careful while taking Mirabegron if I am taking medicines to control my blood pressure?

Yes, you need to be careful while taking Mirabegron if you have high blood pressure. Keep a regular check on your blood pressure since Mirabegron can cause an increase in blood pressure in some people. It should not be used in patients with severe uncontrolled hypertension.

Q. What if I accidentally take more than the required dose of Mirabegron?

You should seek urgent medical attention even if do not feel any discomfort. Overdose of Mirabegron may increase your pulse rate and blood pressure. As a result of this, you may experience severe headache, palpitations, chest pain and fatigue.
