Información de la droga para OXYBUTYNIN CHLORIDE SYRUP (OXYBUTYNIN CHLORIDE ORAL SOLUTION, USP 5 mg per 5 mL) (Qualitest Pharmaceuticals): ADVERSE REACTIONS

  • The safety and efficacy of oxybutynin chloride was evaluated in a total of 199 patients in three clinical trials comparing oxybutynin chloride with oxybutynin chloride extended release tablets (see Table 3). These participants were treated with oxybutynin chloride 5–20 mg/day for up to 6 weeks. Table 3 shows the incidence of adverse events judged by investigators to be at least possibly related to treatment and reported by at least 5% of patients.

    Incidence (%) of Adverse Events Reported by ≥ 5% of PatientsUsing Oxybutynin Chloride (5–20 mg/day)
    Body SystemAdverse EventOxybutynin Chloride(5–20 mg/day) (n=199)
    Infections and Infestations Urinary tract infection6.5%

    Eye Disorders Blurred vision9.6%
    Gastrointestinal Disorders Dry mouth71.4%
    Renal and Urinary Disorders Urinary Hesitation8.5%
    Urinary Retention6.0%

    The most common adverse events reported by patients receiving oxybutynin chloride 5–20 mg/day were the expected side effects of anticholinergic agents. The incidence of dry mouth was dose-related.

    In addition, the following adverse events were reported by 1 to <5% of patients using oxybutynin chloride (5–20 mg/day) in all studies.
