What happens if I miss a dose of oxybutynin?

If you miss a dose of oxybutynin, take or apply your missed dose as soon as you realize that you've forgotten. For oxybutynin tablets, syrup and gel, only take the forgotten dose if it isn't almost time for the next dose. If it is time for the next dose, skip your dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. For the oxybutynin patch, change your patch as soon as you remember and wear it until your next scheduled patch change whether you've worn the patch for a full three days or not. No matter what form of oxybutynin you take, you should never take or apply extra medicine to make up for missed doses.
