Since reading the recent report about the strong connection between certain medications, including oxybutynin, and dementia, I desperately want to cut back on oxybutynin. (I've already cut back on Benadryl, another medication on the list.) Would it work if I took it just on days that I'm out and about and not on days that I'm home all day?
Hello. I have been playing with the doses of oxybutinin a lot, since I was suffering a lot from side effects. Also I take it not all the time.
I do find when I have not taken it for a while, it takes a couple of days before it is fully effective again. But a, say, half effect is directly present I find.
Just check for yourself, with the doses you take, if you are happy with the effect. I feel that there is no necessity to take oxybutinin all the time to benefit from its effects.
Also, dont know if this information is useful to you: Once you stop, the effect of oxybutinin wears of very quickly I have found.
Hope this answer is helpful. Good luck,
