I've been on oxybutynin for 3 weeks and a week ago, I developed pain in my finger joints. Could this drug be causing it? I've never had pain in my hands before and I have no other health problems.

Oxybutynin doesn't cause arthritis-type pain BUT it can cause peripheral edema; however, this would cause your hands to swell and ache but not affect your joints so much becuase it is a circulatory problem. Perhaps it could be something else you are taking that is interacting with the oxybutynin-maybe something you've been taking all along but sine you've started the oxybutynin, it is interacting with it. Just a thought. Hope this helps somewhat.

I know this question was asked in 2009 but I recently took oxybutynin and now my hands hurt so bad that I can't sleep at night. I feel like I have rheumatoid arthritis and did not feel like this before. Wish I had NEVER taken this... definitely not worth it for it. Now I'm afraid I will always be in pain and I'm only 49.
