* BACKGROUND Urge urinary incontinence has drawn attention recently, with a number of studies looking at which treatment provides the best results with the fewest side effects.

The parameters that should be assessed in such a chart include the total number of voids per 24 hours; the total number of daytime (awake) voids; the total number of nighttime voids; total fluid intake; total voided volume; maximum, minimum and mean voided volume; and the number of episodes of urgency and urge urinary incontinence. Ideally, the patient should be asked to complete at least three 24-hour diaries, though a single diary can still be useful.
Researchers found, however, that the combination reduced the frequency of urge urinary incontinence episodes during 10 weeks of active treatment.
