 2  urinary frequency At first I had a very upset stomach and felt very tired. After 3 weeks my bladder symptoms started to improve, but unfortunately I also experienced some breathlesness, nervousness and the tone of my voice changed - it became deeper and quite strange sounding. I had to discontinue the patches for these reasons. Effective on the bladder - but affects too many of the body's other systems too - anywhere that you have smooth muscle. (Lungs, vocal tract, gut etc.) Dissapointing. :-(( My bladder problems are ruining my life. F 27 4 weeks

 3  Overactive bladder Drowsiness at first, but it went away after a couple of days. Constipation was so bad, no movement for a week. I had to take Metamucil. This patch is much less potent than the pill form, which makes it more ideal for daytime use. I liked not being limited to bedtime. I didn't exactly have an overactive bladder, but I just had the SENSATION of having to go. It was due to a stint in the ureter, to unblock obstruction/swelling due to a kidney stone that had passed. It gave me some relief, but I still felt I had "to go" almost all the time. It was the stint irritating the bladder or nerve, alerting you you need to go. F 46 10 days
 2  overactive bladder none I've been using the Oxytrol patch for a week now and have noticed no change in the frequency of my trips to the bathroom. The doctor said it would take a day or 2 to get into my system... F 44 7 days

OXYTROL  (OXYBUTYNIN):  Oxybutynin is used to treat an overactive bladder. By relaxing the muscles in the bladder, oxybutynin improves symptoms such as the inability to control urination (incontinence), feeling that one has to urinate (urgency), and having to go to the bathroom often (frequency). This medication belongs to the class of drugs known as antispasmodics. This medication is not recommended for use in children younger than 5 years of age. Consult your doctor for more information. Unless otherwise directed by your doctor, the over-the-counter product should only be used by adult women who have symptoms of overactive bladder for at least 2 months. For over-the-counter products, carefully read the package instructions to make sure the product is right for you. Check the ingredients on the label even if you have used the product before. The manufacturer may have changed the ingredients. Also, products with similar names may contain different ingredients meant for different purposes. Taking the wrong product could harm you.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
