Oxytrol Side Effects

Painful urination, dry mouth, and itching at the patch application site are some of the most common side effects of Oxytrol. Side effects are usually minor and either don't require treatment or can be treated easily. Certain Oxytrol side effects, while occurring infrequently, are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to a healthcare provider, including worsening of glaucoma, severe constipation, and difficulty passing urine.

Starting in September 2013, Oxytrol patches will be available without a prescription and will be sold under the name "Oxytrol for Women" to treat women over age 18 with overactive bladder. The prescription version will still be available. It is unclear how this will affect the price and insurance coverage for Oxytrol.

An Introduction to Oxytrol Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Oxytrol® (oxybutynin patch); however, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Oxytrol. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Oxytrol side effects with you.)
