What should I avoid while taking oxybutynin?

If you experience side effects like dizziness, blurred vision, and drowsiness while taking oxybutynin, you should avoid operating machinery, driving, and doing other tasks that require you to see clearly and be alert.

While taking oxybutynin, you should also avoid becoming dehydrated or overheated, because oxybutynin may decrease perspiration and put you at higher risk for heat stroke. Try to stay cool and hydrated when you exercise or go out in hot weather.

Don’t drink alcohol while using oxybutynin as it may worsen side effects.

You should also avoid taking any medications or supplements without first consulting your doctor, as there is a possibility of drug interactions.

While using the oxybutynin patch, you should avoid exposing the patch to sunlight by wearing it under clothing.

While using the oxybutynin gel, avoid applying it to open wounds, broken skin, irritate skin, and recently shaved skin. Make sure to keep it from getting in your eyes, mouth, or nose. Avoid applying the gel where oils, lotions, or powders have been used, as the skin will not absorb the medication properly with those barriers, though sunscreen will not affect absorbance.
