I don't know what drug or otc medicine I am taking that might interact - but after being on this drug for approx 2 weeks - i experienced a terrible feeling like my skin was crawling from my knees down to my ankles and the itching was unbearable - i have stopped taking it until I check with my doctor

Well, I got so use to this patch, I thought it didn't really help...........THEN I missed and left it off for a day. Geez...I had to go to the baTHROOM EVERY 5 minutes...so I KNOW it works.

doesn't seem to work for me and the left over adhesive is hard to remove. I would rather take a pill.

It seemed to help somewhat. I stopped the patch after about 6 months and was better than when I started using it - although still having some of the problems just not as bad.

This did not help me.

Comment from: 45-54 (Patient) Published: February 26

the medication was helpful but after several weeks my skin was irritated under the patch. I kept using it and it got so bad that I had to remove the patch. The skin was extremely red and irritated and I also experienced extreme itching on my upper legs.

I have multiple sclerosis and have been on oxytrol (1-1/2 yrs) and ditropan for three years and found there is a slight bit of relief over the years. I get UTI's almost every 2-3 months which exaggerates my exacerbations.

Can you tell me if oxytrol contributes to memory loss?

I wonder if anyone else has experienced headaches since taking this medication. I seem to have developed headaches-some are migraines (which I have a history of)since taking the medication. It does work very as far as stopping my need to urinate frequently.

Comment from: Rose, 75 or over on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: February 01

Have used for 3 years and sometimes feel like it is not working especially during sleep hours. Still have to go 3/4 times during the night. However, I recently read that certain foods & drinks have an affect on the medication, so I am going to pay more attention and see if it makes a difference.
