Not for OAB but for blood pressure. I’m on a low dose. I haven’t noticed any change with the bladder functioning.

Your medicine is described that for treating your blood pressure need down. Because you make urine lots of in your bladder seem fully. Kidney function from your blood filter to urine constant.

Not a doctor, but please don't read a list of serious side effects and decide not to take a drug prescribed to you because of them.
Doctors are not in the habit of prescribing drugs that just swap one set of problems for another, so:
Serious side effects are usually rare, and if you get them you can just tell your doctor who will probably manage the risk by simply telling you not to take that drug.
They can try a different one, or manage the condition some other way.

I beg to differ. I have been seriously physically damaged by doctors prescribing what they felt was "best" for me. I know better now. The last medication prescribed to me I discovered carried the risk of early onset dementia. I asked the doctor about that, and the reply was, "It's possible, but you will have better quality of life now." I then asked if the dementia reverses if I stop taking the med and was informed no, and stopping the med doesn't stop the dementia from getting worse. So it was a gamble that I was not informed about, but discovered researching the medication on my own. I chose not to take the med.

Doctors get paid by pharmacological companies to prescribe medication. Medicine is big business; it is not altruistic. Research any medication you are prescribed and discuss concerns you may have with your doctor. It's your life, your decision.

I don't disagree. My point was to bring concerns up with a doctor rather than just deciding on your own. I wasn't saying you should just blindly trust doctors. Hence why I said "not in the habit of" rather than "never".
