Regardless of a person's age, weight, or other medical conditions, the dosage of Anturol prescribed is the same. The standard amount is three pumps of the gel applied on the skin once a day. You can apply it on various areas of the body, such as shoulders, thighs, or stomach, but avoid applying it on the same spot twice in a row.
An Introduction to Dosing With AnturolThere is only one standard dose of Anturol® (oxybutynin gel). As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
Anturol Dosage for an Overactive Bladder
The recommended Anturol dosage for treating overactive bladder symptoms is three pumps (pressing down on the pump three times), once a day. Apply the gel to dry, clean skin on the abdomen (stomach), upper arms, shoulders, or thighs. It may be useful to rotate the application sites so that you do not apply the gel to the same spot twice in a row.
After applying a dose of Anturol, wash your hands with soap and water. If you anticipate skin-to-skin contact with another individual, make sure to cover the area with clothing after the gel dries.
