Round blue tablet imprinted with 4853 and Cursive V at the bottom of the pill, no markings on the back of pill

I was prescribed medication for pain and the prescription didnt seem to have the name my doctor told me previously so i looked it up on the internet and couldnt find a pain reliever that matched the markings on the pill: which were 4853 above the hetch mark and a cursive V below the hetch mark ## Hi Lorelle, The round blue pill in description marked V 4853 is Oxybutynin chloride (5 mg).

White oxybutinin not working for me

My pharmacy changed from dispensing me blue oxybutinin that has worked well for me for years, to white oxybutinin. The blue ones dissolved immediately in my Foley irrigation solution but not the white ones. I'm having a lot of leakage now from bladder spasms and it's only since I have been taking the white pills.

The pill I take has ku on one side and 272 on the other side why is this happening and has anyone else had this problem?

Oxybutynin, wean off, side effects

My 12 year old daughter has been taking oxybutynin (10mg one time per day) and Nitrofurantoin (50mg one time per day) for over a year now. All of this is trying to help her bladder relax so she can fully void - we are hoping this will solve the problem she was having for two years causing recurrent UTIs. We are at a point where we want her to stop taking the medications - we need to see how she does off all of the meds. But how do I safely/effectively wean her off of these meds? We are no longer under the care of a doctor because we couldn't afford the $400 office visit that we were going to be charged just to be told how to get her off the medications. So now I need to know....do I just have her stop taking both meds at once or do I first try to eliminate one from her system, follo...

why would my dr prescribe oxybutynin & myrbetriq

I had bladder mesh surgery 7yrs ago, several procedures, hysteroscopy and have been on myrbetriq for a few years. But now my Dr has added oxybutynin with this, so does this mean my bladder is getting worse? ## Have your issues and symptoms become worse? You would be the best person to know that.

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 ## Good lord, NO! MUST first rule out UTI and diabetes

Parkinson's and Oxybutynin

My husband was prescribed Oxybutynin over two weeks ago, after a week the dose was increased to two tablets a day. He has Parkinson's disease and takes Sinemet and Ropineral. Over the past few days, his Parkinson's which was controlled has now spiraled to the point where his mobility and tremors are badly affected. Could this be connected to the Oxybutynin? This condition worsens as the day progresses. ## Yes, the NCBI actually does report that is has been known to worsen cognitive function in those that have Parkinson's. This has also been noted in studies by other groups, such as SafeRX, and some government clinical trials. What dosage is he currently taking? Why was it prescribed and what other medications does he take?

Oxybutynin 15mg Extended Release

Due to my spinal cord injury and paraplegia I use digital stimulation for my bowel program and therefor have the opportunity to feel some of the fecal matter as it comes through my colon. On at least 4 occasions I have found the Oxybutynin 15mg Extended Release tablets entirely intact. As an experiment I placed a tablet in a glass of water for 24 hours and after that time found the tablet intact except for the light coating that dissolved. The remains of the tablet had an almost rubber like coating. The tablet could be cut with a knife and the interior contained a white powder. It seems like the tablets are not dissolving. I have had to increase my dose to two tablets a day instead of one. In the past I was taking 5mg of Oxybutynin 3Xday. What is the mechanism for dissolving the tablets...

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 ...
