Oxybutynin (Ditropan) acts by relaxing the bladder muscle and reducing spasm. Oxybutynin is used to treat bladder instability (ie, urgency, frequency, leakage, incontinence, and painful or difficult urination) caused by a neurogenic bladder (altered bladder function caused by a nervous system abnormality). Adverse reactions observed in patients taking oxybutynin include dry mouth, constipation or diarrhea, decreased production of tears, decreased sweating, gastrointestinal disturbances, dim vision, and urinary hesistancy.
