It has been said that approximately 40% of all drugs and medications originate from herbal sources. Drugs often come with a host of side-effects due to their synthetic properties. Herbal treatments, on the other hand, have a balanced and harmonious effect because they are used in their whole, original, untampered state. An efficient herbal blend will bring more than one benefit to the body; so the side-effects of herbal use are actually side-benefits.
Ditropan (oxybutynin) is an antispasmodic drug that is based on the use of the Atropa Belladonna plant. Oxybutynin is commonly prescribed for the treatment of neurogenic bladder. It help the bladder to relax so that it can holds urine at low pressure, preventing reflux, thus protecting the bladder. Unfortunately it is accompanied by a host of side effects.
Belladonna has been used in herbal medicine for centuries as a pain reliever, muscle relaxer, and anti-inflammatory. It has been suggested that it could replace oxybutynin in the treatment of neurogenic bladder, without the accompanying side effects.
