... enlarged prostate? Also, what were the side effects?
Oxybutynin chloride is used to treat bladder problems caused by nerve problems.
Bladder problems are often caused by muscle contractions that are too frequent and uncontrollable. Normally, the bladder slowly fills until nerve signals tell your brain that the bladder is full and you need to use the bathroom. Then the brain sends nerve signals to the bladder, causing the muscles to contract when you urinate. Nerve signals are important in order for this process to work correctly. Sometimes, nerve problems (which may occur in the brain, spinal cord, or nerves of the bladder) interfere with this process. Oxybutynin can be useful for treating bladder problems caused by a nerve disorder that causes the muscles to contract too frequently and uncontrollably.
I'm not sure how effective oxybutynin would be in your case given that it is the enlarged prostate causing the problem and not the nerves .
You may get better relief with medications that are designed to shrink the prostate.
