Drug-related causes of stress incontinence can include alpha-adrenergic antagonists.
Treatment is based on the type of incontinence, and may include muscle exercises, biofeedback, electric stimulation, behavioral treatments, various surgical interventions, and pharmacologic treatments, such as anticholinergic-antispasmodic agents and alpha-adrenergic antagonists.
Besides prostatic surgery, lately treatment has been focused on the alteration of disease progression and prevention of complications that can be associated with BPH/LUTS and has been treated with various pharmacological agents as alpha-adrenergic antagonists
(Alpha-blockers), 5-alphareductase inhibitors (5-ARIs), cholinergics and phytotherapeutics; 5[alpha]-reductase inhibitors block the conversion of testosterone to the more potent dihydrotestosterone and a-blockers affect the smooth muscle tone by lowering the increased sympathetic adrenergic activity at bladder neck and prostate smooth mscles.
block the stimulation of the alpha receptors in the body.
