What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

How Does Oxybutynin Gel Work?

Oxybutynin gel belongs to a group of drugs known as antimuscarinic or anticholinergic medications. The drug works for bladder problems by blocking specific receptors (called muscarinic receptors) in the bladder, helping to relax the muscles of the bladder. Because an overactive bladder is often due to bladder muscle contractions that are too frequent and uncontrollable, oxybutynin gel can help relieve many symptoms of bladder problems.
