Overdosage with oxybutynin has been associated with anticholinergic effects including central nervous system excitation, flushing, fever, dehydration, cardiac arrhythmia, vomiting, and urinary retention. Oral ingestion of 100 mg oxybutynin chloride in association with alcohol has been reported in a 13-year-old boy who experienced memory loss, and in a 34-year-old woman 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.
Plasma concentrations of oxybutynin begin to decline 24 hours after GELNIQUE application. If overexposure occurs, monitor patients until symptoms resolve.
The use of GELNIQUE is contraindicated in the following conditions:
- Urinary retention
- Gastric retention
- Uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma
- Known serious hypersensitivity reaction to GELNIQUE, oxybutynin, or to any of the components of GELNIQUE [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]
