How long does it take for Gemtesa (vibegron) to work?

Medically reviewed by Carmen Pope, BPharm. Last updated on May 4, 2022.

Official answer


Gemtesa (vibegron) starts working almost immediately – within a few days of first taking it, with noticeable improvements in urinary urgency, frequency, and incontinence noted in clinical trials at 2 weeks which were reported as significant by 12 weeks.

After 12 weeks, people taking Gemtesa had 2 fewer daily leakage episodes compared to 1 fewer episode in those taking placebo, 2 fewer bathroom visits (versus 1 fewer with placebo), and 3 fewer “urge to go” visits a day compared to 2 fewer with placebo.
