Oxytrol (oxybutynin) for Urinary Incontinence: "I have overactive bladder & Incontinence really bad for being in my late 30's. I never thought a single patch for 24 hours could even function for my disfunctional bladder. I put it on for the first time after I showered before bed, waking up I didn't feel as full and didn't have to rush to the bathroom. During the day no leakage at all when I walk and no urge. I feel normal again. All I know whoever invented this is genius cause it is so nice to not wear pads, but please just reduce the price a bit."

For Overactive Bladder: "Prescribed oxybutnin er 10 MG once a day for OAB. Female 23 yes old. Ive been taking it for a little over two weeks with no real improvement. The only thing I can notice us perhaps I am able to empty my bladder a little easier, but not much. Still have urgency, spasms, and frequentl urination. Made my mouth and lips very very very dry. Made me thirsty but didn't help me at all. I'm sorry but I don't recommend it. Vesicare was the only thing I think will actually help me, too bad it costs $200 and my insurance refuses to pay for it."

For Hyperhidrosis: "After ten years of being brushed off by people I thought where dermatologists I have finally found relief in this medication. As my career and age progressed I have been placed in social situations that require hand to hand contact. My hands and armpits sweat constantly to a point they were dripping. It negatively affected all aspect of intimate encounters. Within a day of starting this medication I saw results. I was given 5mg however I notice that I must take it twice a day for a total of 10mg. No side effects except dry mouth and itching dry eyes."

For Hyperhidrosis: "I have suffered with excessive sweating for the past year or so. This is a long term side effect of my Duloxetine. I'm on 120 mgs a day for pain management (peripheral neuropathy from having had Guillam Barre Syndrome) and my mood. I suffered terrible sweating on my back and chest and under my arms. I would arrive at work saturated. I would need to change my shirt 2 or 3 times in a day. I started on Oxybutinin extended release in February 2016 and the change has been amazing. I experience a number of side effects. Mainly dry mouth, slightly blurred vision and stomach and bowel problems but in comparison to the sweating I know what I prefer. It's made such a difference. I'm a UK resident."

For Hyperhidrosis: "Suffer from excessive sweating on my face & when in hot climate it spreads to my back too. I begged help from GP who tried me on Propanthaline which left me in agony due to difficulty passing urine & cystitis type reaction after 3 days use. I was then passed to dermatology dept. at hospital who just said nothing could do! Oh the wonder of UK'S NHS!! Said to try propanano, which again did not work. So I did my own research and went 'cap in hand' back to my GP & BEGGED to try Oxybutynin. He said no solid evidence it works & it's just a placebo for hyperhydrosis. Anyway he gave in & said I could try 5mg a day. I started them 5 days ago & but better so upping dose to 10mg (at night) as makes me drowsy."

For Hyperhidrosis: "This medication has helped me so much. Over the last few years my sweating became really excessive on my face and neck. My neck just gushed swest. All areas of my life were affected, and I was humiliated on a daily basis. I heard about an oral medication for hyperhidrosis, so I went online to do some research and I learned about oxybutynin, then went to the doctor who gave me a prescription for 5mg 2x daily. I think it took 2 or 3 days to see a difference, and it was a big difference. I was literally overjoyed. I don't mind the side effects (dry mouth and drowsiness), but for me the oxybutynin does not take the sweating completely away. I'm now in 10 mg 2x daily. I also notice it stops working about halfway through my day."

For Overactive Bladder: "I have only rated this med a 1 simply because of the side effects. I am SO disappointed. The meds actually work so well, I went from going to the bathroom every 20 minuets and 5 or 6 times a night to around 8 times a day, BUT oh my the side effects. After 2 days I had to stop the medication. The worst migraine of my life, nausea, dizzyness, blurred vision, and I felt like my heart was about to jump out of my chest. PLEASE who ever makes this please fix the side effects, so that I can take this med."

For Overactive Bladder: "I asked my doctor recently that I can't break a sweat when I work out. He said it was this medication. I see the full tablet in my stool. Not sure it's absorbed in my system. Going to contact my doctor."

For Hyperhidrosis: "Fifteen years ago I was desperate to find relief for my severe Hyperhydrosis (hands and feet). I discovered oxybutinin and it has literally changed the course of my life. I started with one 5mg dose in the morning and one 5mg dose at night. The side effects (drowsiness, foggy brain, dry mouth) were a little much for me so I cut my morning dose in half. This medication has allowed me to feel like a normal person and to engage in activities that I used to withdraw from (public speaking, shaking hands, wearing flip flops, etc.). I tried Botox (very little effect), acupuncture, drysol. Nothing has been nearly as effective as the oxybutinin. It's a game-changer!"

Oxytrol (oxybutynin) for Overactive Bladder: "Great product I have been on other drugs that gave me back side effects-rash, itching, dry mouth, constipation, headache, dizziness, back pain, etc. I urinate on average 20-40 times a day every approx 15-20 minutes, after using the patch I went as long as 2 hours without using restroom. my skin is irritated and red but better than spending my whole day in the bathroom. I cant believe my doctor didn't put me on this over the counter drug first before spending hundreds of dollars on prescription medications. I have suffered for over 30 yrs with the issue of urgency and frequency this is a miracle for me. Praise the LORD"

For Hyperhidrosis: "I lived in South east asia, basically it is summer all year round over here. I have been suffering from craniofacial hyperhidrosis since young. And the condition got progressively bad over the years especially the last 3 years. It has affected my personal life, my career and my psychological state of mind. Because I was so afraid of sweating, I developed social anxiety. Until earlier this week, I decided to get help for it and I came across Oxybutynin as oral treatment for HH. Within 2nd day of taking it, my sweating was reduced by 70%. 3rd and subsequent days I basically am sweat free. It's been years since I last felt this good! I regained my confidence, became more sociable. I got my career back on track, I got my life back."

For Hyperhidrosis: "I've had hyperhidrosis since early teens. All my body is affected but feet are the worst. In the past I had to change shoes every 2-3 months because they started smell from my feet. I was ashamed when shaking hands because mine were constantly wet. I have tried many things but nothing worked. Oxybutynin changed my life. I only take one tablet at night as higher dose makes me drowsy and my mouth gets too dry. This is enough to stop my body sweating, however not enough for my feet; but this is a compromise. Feel like I was given a new life. Shame GPS don't prescribe it as proper hyperhydrosis treatment."

For Hyperhidrosis: "This condition came from no where I never had any problems with sweating at all so 4 years ago when I turned 30 is when it all started, usually when I was out in public I would get anxious and start sweating I'd just want the earth to open up and swallow me it was so embarrassing. I went to see my doctor and a specialist and got a medical roll on and prescribed oxybutynin, the sweating stopped under my arms but started on my face and head. It's really affected my social life as I don't want to go places because of this condition. The pills have definitely helped don't get me wrong they've just not stopped the sweating completely."

For Hyperhidrosis: "I was prescribed oxybutynin Yesterday, the quality of my life has greatly improved, no more sweating and I can focus on job and talk to other people without any worries. Though mouth is just a bit dry, not a big effect. At least I have felt normal for once in my life just like everybody else, hope this great trend continues."

Ditropan (oxybutynin) for Overactive Bladder: "Started using ditropan (5mg) 3 days ago. On day one I took it with breakfast and noticed that post-shower while drying my hair (and straightening) it I didn't have a bead of sweat in sight! This dosage and medicine type has definitely kept me dry all-day long since then. I do however still sweat quite a bit at the gym but once I am done exercising I am no longer sweating at all (I would usually sweat quite a bit after the gym). I am giving it an 8/10 because it seems to wear off near the end of the day but I may just need to up the dosage a tiny bit."

For Overactive Bladder: "I took oxybutynin for 2 months recently and had no luck. I didn't have any side effects, but didn't help with my OAB at all. My doctor wrote me out a prescription for Vesicare so hopefully that will give me some relief."

For Overactive Bladder: "Started taking oxybutynin as I was having frequent need to urinate terrible bladder spasms/pressure/discomfort and need to urinate after I had already gone. It was almost constant and depressing. Sometimes I used heating pad on pelvis to relax as much as possible. Started taking oxybutynin but it wasn't helping great deal until I started taking the extended release. That has been a life saver for me. It started working within 2 weeks even though It could take up to 6 weeks to kick in. Maybe because I had already been taking the regular oxybutynin a few weeks prior. Either way a miracle and don't think I will have to increase dose at this point. I am drinking plenty of water and trying to eat plenty of fiber to avoid side effects."

For Urinary Incontinence: "I bought the OTC patch. I have problems with urge incontinence and thought this might help. Wore the patch for 24 hours, after a couple of hours of having it on I started noticing I was having cramps and pain, the urge got worse and I felt like I had to urinate constantly. I took the patch off and a few hours later the cramps and feeling of having to urinate constantly went away."

Oxytrol (oxybutynin) for Overactive Bladder: "I absolutely love this patch! Thank you for putting it back on the shelves! I am only 45, and had trouble since my hysterectomy several years ago. In fact I was wearing a diaper to bed,not too sexy I admit! These patches are awesome and have given me back my life! They do get less sticky in the shower but I just face my body the other way, the stickies come off with no problem with goo gone or baby oil. Well worth it!"
