Overdosage with oxybutynin has been associated with anticholinergic effects including central nervous system excitation, flushing, fever, dehydration, cardiac arrhythmia, vomiting, exhaustion, heat sensitivity, and urinary retention. Oral ingestion of 100 mg oxybutynin chloride in association with alcohol has been reported in a 13-year-old who experienced memory loss, and in a 34-year-old who developed stupor, followed by disorientation and agitation on awakening, dilated pupils, dry skin, cardiac arrhythmia, and retention of urine. Both patients recovered fully with symptomatic treatment. If overexposure occurs, monitor patients until symptoms resolve.
The use of ANTUROL is contraindicated in patients with the following conditions:
- Urinary retention [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
- Gastric retention [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
- Uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
