Oxytrol For Women Patch Information

Adult women who suffer from an overactive bladder may buy Oxytrol® For Women (OTC oxybutynin patch) as an over-the-counter (OTC) medication. This nonprescription product comes as a skin patch that is applied to the abdomen (stomach), hips, or buttocks every four days. It works by binding to certain receptors in the bladder, helping to control the bladder muscles.
 
Although most women who use this medicated skin patch tolerate it fairly well, side effects are possible. Some of the potential reactions include constipation, dry mouth, and itching at the application site. Fortunately, most reactions to the drug tend to be mild and easy to treat.
 
While this patch can be effective, Oxytrol For Women is not appropriate for everyone. Information on your medical history should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment to minimize your risk for complications. This includes warnings for women who have allergies, are taking certain medications, or have specific medical conditions.
