The purpose of this study is to evaluate the rate of "add-on" solifenacin treatment and its persistency in men with over active bladder symptoms after tamsulosin monotherapy for 4 weeks.
Condition or disease
This is a multi-center study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and persistency of solifenacin treatment in male patients with persistent OAB symptoms of urinary frequency and urgency with/without urgency incontinence who are receiving tamsulosin monotherapy for LUTS at a stable dose for 4 weeks in real life practice. Also proportion of patients and predictive factors with persistent OAB symptoms after tamsulosin monotherapy will be investigated.
A Prospective, Open-label, Observational, Multi-center Study for the Identification of Predictive Factors for the Solifenacin Treatment in Men With Overactive Bladder Symptoms After Tamsulosin Monotherapy for 4 Weeks and Evaluation of Efficacy and Persistency of Add on Solifenacin in Men With Residual Overactive Bladder Symptoms After Previous Monotherapy With Tamsulosin.
