Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Oxybutynin is most commonly used for bladder instability/overactive bladder. Bladder instability/overactive bladder would be associated with symptoms such as passing urine frequently , urge incontinence- sudden very strong urge to urinate which may cause incontinence (urine to leak out).

Like all meds there are possible side effects that may or may not occur such as dry mouth, constipation, excess drowsiness, nausea.
These are some of the possible effects

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
