Oxybutynin HCI produced at our Gujarat based facility following all the regulations is pure and effective. This tertiary amine has antimuscarinic and antispasmodic properties. By blocking the muscarinic receptors in smooth muscle, oxybutynin suppresses the binding of acetylcholine and reduces the activity of involuntary muscles. The compound oxybutynin reduces bladder contractions by relaxing bladder smooth muscle. As an anticholinergic, oxybutynin is used for treating urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.
