Ditropan Drug Information

Available by prescription only, Ditropan® (oxybutynin chloride) is a drug used to treat bladder problems caused by nerve problems (known medically as neurogenic bladder). In particular, the medication helps treat the following symptoms:
 
  • Frequent urination
  • Sudden, frequent urges to urinate
  • Painful urination
  • Leaking accidents (known as urinary incontinence or urge incontinence).
  •  
The medication is usually taken two to four times a day. It comes in the form of a tablet and a syrup; the syrup may be a better choice for people who have trouble swallowing tablets.
 
Before starting Ditropan, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. This product is not suitable for everyone, so tell your healthcare provider about all your current medications and any medical conditions you have, such as kidney disease, glaucoma, or high blood pressure. This will help ensure your safety and reduce your risk of complications.
