If you are dealing with a bladder condition, your doctor may have prescribed you oxybutynin. This medication reduces bladder and urinary tract muscle spasms. So it can reduce symptoms of an overactive bladder, such as frequent urination, incontinence, and increased night-time urination.
For a better chance at lowering any overactive bladder issues, take oxybutynin as advised by your doctor and prescription label.
Typically, you’ll take oxybutynin with a full glass of water unless otherwise instructed. Make sure to do this at the same time each day.
You can also take your medication with or without food.
Once done with your medication for the day, store it at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
Oxybutynin can decrease your overall perspiration and impair your thinking or reactions. So when taking this medication, be sure to avoid overheating or dehydrating yourself and stay careful when doing anything that depends on your focus and eyesight.
Oxybutynin can also create unintended side effects. Common ones include a dry mouth, dry eyes, blurry vision, mild constipation, dizziness, and drowsiness.
If you feel very thirsty, hot, unable to urinate or deal with heavy sweating, severe stomach pain, eye pain, urination pain, similar symptoms, or other serious side effects stop taking this medication immediately. Then, call your doctor for medical help.
