Oxytrol has another better-known name Oxybutynin. This remedy has similar properties with Ditropan or Urotrol. This medicament looks like a small patch that you can stick on your stomach, buttocks, or thighs. Use these patches as your doctor recommended. If the patch has come off and you cannot fix it on the skin again, take a new one and stick it on the skin for the remaining time of use. One patch is used on the skin for 3 to 4 days. The most active component inside the patch is oxybutynin.
