Oxybutynin Overview

Oxybutynin (brand names Ditropan, Lyrinel XL, Lenditro (ZA), Driptane (RU), Uripan (Middle East)[1]) is an anticholinergic medication used to relieve urinary and bladder difficulties, including frequent urination and inability to control urination (urge incontinence), by decreasing muscle spasms of the bladder.[2] Also given to help with symptoms associated with kidney stones. It competitively antagonizes the M1, M2, and M3 subtypes of the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor. It also has direct...

Extreme knee pain on Oxybutynin
2 Replies RSS
After only two weeks of taking oxybutynin 10 mg once a day, I am suffering from severe knee pain. Has this happened to anyone else? ## Hello, Yvette! How are you? Has there been any change? The FDA doesn't list that as a side effect, but they do list back pain, so it is most likely reasonable to assume that it may cause pain in other areas of the body, as well. I tried this one years ago and always got sick shortly after taking it, so I had to stop it. Have you tried any other medications in this class? ## I stopped taking Oxybutynin but the pain continued. I think my pain was caused by trauma when I helped a friend move. Thhe knees are slowly improving so I think the meds are not at fault.

Efficacy of Oxybutynin and Urinary Incontinence

I've had been given a puba vaginal sling and bladder suspension a month ago. I'm now taking Oxybutynin 15 mg and I still experience leakage. Why? ## Hello, Kelly! I am sorry about the problems you're experiencing. Has there been any change? What was your specific diagnosis? That could help explain why you are still experiencing an issue. Additionally, no procedure, or medication, even if FDA approved, is guaranteed to work for 100% of those that try it. Are you on any other medications? ## I had a tilted urethra and falling bladder. Had urethra sling and bladder suspension. Now there's no physical reason I should be still leaking. First follow up left me with an oab diagnosis and oxybutynin script.. which doesn't help. I have another follow up next week and hope for ...

When should I start to feel a difference? Will 10mg twice a day help more than the 5mg twice a day? Is there any better medication to ask my GO (UK) for? I have a Suprapubic Catheter fitted and Irritable Bladder Syndrome.

eyesight oxybutin

My aunt is having problems with her eyesight and found out that oxybutin can cause vision problems. She's been off of oxybutin for 2 weeks and her eyesight isn't any better. She says there's a shadow where here vision is blocked. Has anyone experienced this? If so, did it clear up or was it something different? Wondering if it's time to see a specialist. Thanks!! ## Hello, Gina! How are you? Generally, the Oxybutynin tends to cause blurry vision and dizziness due to the way it affects the vision, as listed by the FDA and from my own personal experience trying it years ago. Other side effects may include headache, dry mouth and urinary retention. Thus, it would be best for her to have this checked out by a specialist to be sure. When I stopped taking it, my vision issues ...

oxybutynin how long does it take to work

How long does it take oxybutinin to work? I just started the pill form 5 mg today, supposed to take 2x daily and only took one so far and still going like crazy ## Hello, Sammy! How are you? There may be some slight effect when you first start taking it, but usually it can take awhile for it to reach a good efficacy level in your body. Really, having taken just one dose is too soon to expect it to do much. If you continue for a week or more and have no results, then you'll need to contact your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is it safe for my friend to take oxybutin from chemist shes weeing none stop and wont go doctors but it is bad the worst ive seen its constant

15 mg Oxybutynin ER pill in stool
1 Reply RSS
I take 15 mg Oxybutynin ER in the evening. This morning it came out whole in my stool. What's going on? ## Hello, Karin! How are you? I understand your concern, but I can assure you that it's completely normal. Some time released medications, such as this one, use the outer shell as part of the time release mechanism and it is not intended to be dissolved by your stomach acid. Think of it this way... the outer shell basically has 2 little holes in it, that are covered by a light coating and not very easy to see, the inner components are something similar to a sponge, plus the active medication... when you swallow the pill, your stomach acid dissolves that thin coating over the holes, then the sponge starts to absorb some stomach acid/fluids, which forces the medication slowly ou...

I don't think it is working for me and I want to compare how may times I urinate with and without it? ## How long have you been taking Oxybutynin?

Thanks for you knowledge and information I can't always reach my doctor, but I have an appointment and I hope to have something to discuss

oxybutynin how long does it take to wear off?
4 Replies RSS
My son has been on oxybutynin er for 6 months. He has recently started having trouble voiding. It seems like his bladder is too relaxed. He is unable to urinate when he wants to, however he when his bladder gets very full he has a large urine accident. Is this a common side effect? How long will it take for the medication to wear off. ## Hello, Suzy! How are you? Yes, it is listed as a common side effect by the FDA, along with nausea, blurred vision and dehydration. Oxybutynin's half-life is only about 2 to 3 hours, so its full clearance would be 10 to 18 hours, but it may take a few days for the full effects to wear off, if he's been on it for months. However, he should have this checked out by his doctor to be sure of what's going on. Is there anything else I can help with...
