Is botox suitable for detrusor hyperreflexia?

Years ago I was diagnosed with detrusor hyperreflexia - involuntary bladder muscles contractions caused by a neurological disease. It's also called neurogenic bladder but bladder retraining didn't work. Anticholinergic meds only reduced the need to urinate to every 2 hours.

At the moment I have to "hold" the constant urge to urinate and manage to 'hold' it for 1 hour. So I basically go every hour and overnight I generally go every 2 hours.

I've recently read about botox injections being useful but the article that I read it in said that it's good if you have neurogenic bladder incontinence - I don't have the incontinence part.

Maybe the article was misleading and it's not only for incontinence but general neurogenic bladder. Know what I mean?

Can anybody give me any advice as to whether it will work? Or if it's worth trying?

What kind of doctor/nurse does the botox injection?

thanks everyone
