    Following up on an old thread because I didn't get around to this until now, but while my uro is still insistent on the bladder botox approach, she was open to the medication approach and suggested triple drug therapy of Ditropan, Imipramine, and Flomax. I'm wondering how these compare to the two that you mentioned here, and if it make sense to take all three of these? Mostly concerned about the effects of the Imipramine since it's mainly an antidepressant (and has a ton of scary side effects).

    But also, I realized I never really got an explanation of the concerns with high pressure differences between the two. What are the health concerns for both high voiding and high filling pressure? Is the bladder reflux only caused by one, or both? If just one, what does the other do?
