The oxybutynin patch is available by prescription to treat the symptoms of an overactive bladder. It relaxes the bladder muscles to help reduce urinary urgency, leaking accidents, and frequent urination. The oxybutynin patch, which is usually changed twice a week, is the only bladder control medication available in patch form. Potential side effects include constipation, dry mouth, and itching at the application site.
