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 went away within days.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thank you very much! We're going to see a specialist. All meds nowadays seem to have side effects that aren't very pleasant.

Yes, they certainly do. It can be very frustrating.

Please post back and keep me updated!

stopped taking oxybutinin for my 10 year old sons incontinence due to vision problems but he is still complaining do I need to go to a specialist? How long should I wait for all the side effects with his vision to clear up?

Turns out she had blocked interior cateroid arteries. Thank God we caught it - she's okay but will never get her vision back in her left eye. Now she takes an aspirin a day.

I take 5mg once a day in the late afternoon to help prevent massive urination in bed. It has been a godsend however it blurs my vision and makes my eyes ache, to the point that I'm going to have to stop taking it.

I had to go back on the oxybutynin because I was tired of being soaked in urine day and night. I have the vision problems back. Not sure what to do. At this point I have to make a choice. My whole house smells like urine, my floor is covered with urine where I can't make it to the toilet in time and don't have a pad on. And my mattress smells like urine. My nightclothes are always stained with urine. My vision in my left eye is already affected by another problem so I can't see that well with this additional problem. ugh.

Yes, I am also taking Oxybutinin and have started experiencing blurred vision in my right eye. I had not associated this eye problem with this medication but after thinking about when it started, it was not until after I started taking Oxybutinin.
