Anticholinergics, acetylcholinesterase inhibitor medications, and pramlintide may potentially cause drug interactions with the oxybutynin patch. These negative interactions could decrease the effectiveness of the medicines, slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract, or increase your risk of developing side effects. You can help prevent oxybutynin patch interactions by telling your healthcare provider about all other medications you are currently taking.

The prescription version will still be available. It is unclear how this will affect the price and insurance coverage for the oxybutynin patch.
