    It helped to stop the urgency and could make it to the bathroom more often. I stopped taking it because I was having pain in both legs and my mouth was so dry that it was intolerable. I am searching for an affordable alternative.

    I'm an active young 77. I've had urgency problems since a double spinal fusion years ago. Vesicare worked better for me but Oxybutynin is a good substitute as Vesicare was prohibitively expensive. I've not had any side effects, but I don't take it every day. I take it the night before I have an active day planned for the next day. The most I've taken it is 3 days in a row. I ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken 2 5mg. each night for a little over a week now. I have Very dry mouth, but my biggest concern is I have pain in my bladder area. Has anyone else experienced this? I am still getting up 3-4 times a night to urinate. But then I know 2 weeks really isn't long enough to see if it will work. Just wondering about the pain thing.
