General Information On Oxytrol
Oxytrol or Oxybutynin transdermal is a medication used for treating an overactive bladder. By relaxing the muscles of the bladder, Oxytrol improves symptoms such as the inability to control urination and very frequent urination. This drug belongs to a category of drugs called anti-spasmodics and is not recommended for children less than 5 years of age. You can buy Oxytrol only if you have got the prescription from a qualified health professional.
Side Effects for Oxytrol
Some of the symptoms that may occur at the site of application include pruritus, erythema and vesicles. You may also suffer from dry mouth, diarrhea and dysuria. Most of these symptoms diminish over time, but you need to contact your doctor if they do not get better after a while. Other side effects that you may experience include flatulence, nausea, abdominal pain, headache, somnolence, fatigue, rash, back pain, and burning at the application site. If you are experiencing some serious side effects like painful urination, kidney infection, difficulty urinating, vision problems, mood changes, flushed skin, irregular heart beat, intestinal blockage or severe constipation, then you need to stop using Oxytrol immediately and contact your doctor.
Oxytrol has to be applied only on dry intact skin on the hip, buttocks, or abdomen. Make sure you select a new site each time you re-apply the drug for at least 7 days. You should not buy Oxytrol if you have severe blockage in your intestines, urinary retention, narrow-angle glaucoma, active internal bleeding, muscle disease, heart problems, an overactive thyroid, any nervous system disorders, or an enlarged prostate. Since this drug may make you dizzy, you should not drive or operate any machinery during the course of medication. Limit your alcohol intake, as alcohol may worsen the side effects of the drug. This drug may decrease sweating, so don’t overexert yourself, as it may result in a heatstroke. After removing a patch, fold it into half so that it sticks together and throw it away in a place where pets or children have no access.
Oxytrol 3.9mg is applied per day, twice a week, at an interval of 3-4 days. Take the Oxytrol patch out of the sealed pouch, press it onto your skin firmly, and make sure that the edges have been sealed around. You need to remove this patch and apply a new one at least twice a week. If some adhesive is left behind on your skin after removing the patch, use a mild soap or baby oil to clean it. Do not use alcohol, harsh soap or nail polish remover, as this may irritate your skin and worsen the side effects of the drug.
Do not use Oxytrol with drugs that may make you sleepy, such as sedatives, sleeping pills, allergy or cold drugs, narcotic pain drugs, muscle relaxers, anti-depressants, and drugs for seizures. Inform your doctor if you are taking any drugs like Donnatal, Bentyl, Robinul, Anaspaz, Levsin, Cantil, Pamine, Transderm Scap, antibiotics, and anti-fungal drugs.
