Oxytrol Uses

How Does Oxytrol Work?

Oxytrol belongs to a group of drugs known as anticholinergic or antimuscarinic medications. It works by binding to specific receptors (called muscarinic receptors) in the bladder, relaxing the muscles of the bladder. Since an overactive bladder is often caused by bladder muscles that contract too frequently and uncontrollably, Oxytrol can help relieve many of the symptoms of an overactive bladder.

Off-Label Oxytrol Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Oxytrol for treating something other than an overactive bladder. At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label uses for Oxytrol.
