Oxybutynin Drug Information

Medication Information: Oxybutynin is used to treat urinary problems such as recurrence, incontinence and emergency urination. Emergency urination occurs when you suddenly need to urinate. Incontinence is a condition in which you leak urine before going to the bathroom. Frequent urination also requires more than normal urination.

Urinary problems have a variety of causes, including weak pelvic floor muscles, bladder muscle problems (causing rapid and frequent bladder contractions), and conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS). Sometimes the cause of these urinary problems is also unknown.

In addition, oxybutynin is used to treat enuresis caused by overactive bladder in children older than 5 years.

Oxybutynin treats urinary problems by relaxing the bladder muscles and stopping sudden muscle contractions. It also increases the volume of the bladder (the amount of urine that the bladder can hold). These measures help control urination and reduce urinary problems.
