In this regard, what is the best time of the day to take oxybutynin?
Immediate-release oxybutynin is usually taken three to four times daily unless it is just used for night-time urinary incontinence when one dose is taken at night. An extended-release tablet (Ditropan XL) and a patch which is placed on the skin (Oxytrol) are also available.
Likewise, how long does Ditropan stay in your system? Do not stop taking oxybutynin without talking to your doctor. You may notice some improvement in your symptoms within the first 2 weeks of your treatment. However, it may take 6–8 weeks to experience the full benefit of oxybutynin.
Besides, what exactly does oxybutynin do?
Oxybutynin reduces muscle spasms of the bladder and urinary tract. Oxybutynin is used to treat symptoms of overactive bladder, such as frequent or urgent urination, incontinence (urine leakage), and increased night-time urination.
Does oxybutynin make you sleepy?
Oxybutynin may cause anxiety, confusion, irritability, sleepiness or unusual drowsiness, or hallucinations (seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not there). This medicine may cause some people to become dizzy, drowsy, or have blurred vision.
