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] It is also given to help with symptoms associated with kidney stones.

why would my dr prescribe oxybutynin & myrbetriq
1 Reply RSS
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. Are you sure your doctor didn't want you to switch from one to the other? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, dizziness, blurred vision, and vomiting.

oxybutynin how long does it take to work
3 Replies RSS
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

oxybutynin 5mg withdrawal off oxybutynin
5 Replies RSS
I was taking oxybutynin 5mg three times a day for about 2 months. I've had surgery and don't need it anymore Now I'm nauseated no energy. Basically feel horrible. Am I going thru withdrawal? I'm also having pain in my vaginal area the pain is like a soreness. ## Hello, Cindi! Sorry that you're so miserable. Have things improve, at all? Yes, withdrawal effects can happen with any medication that you've been on for a long period of time, even when it's something innocuous that you didn't abuse. Learn more Oxybutynin details here. It could also be some after effects of the surgery, or a combination of both. I'm not sure if the vaginal pain is related, or not. Have you consulted your doctor? That would be the best thing to do, just to make sure that there...

Parkinson's and Oxybutynin
1 Reply RSS
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
4 Replies RSS
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 ...
