The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence ( NICE) in England and Wales has issued final draft guidance recommending Betmiga (mirabegron) from Astellas for reimbursement. The decision follows a provisional recommendation from the institute in March 2013. Betmiga is recommended for overactive bladder syndrome in people unsuited to antimuscarinic drugs because they are contraindicated, clinically ineffective or cause unacceptable side-effects.
