Symptoms will recur! No withdrawal symptoms!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

Oxybutynin is used to control symptoms of overreactive bladder. If stopped cold turkey, there are no withdrawal symptoms. However, symptoms of overreactive bladder would recur. If you are feeling better at this time, it might be best to reduce dosage than stop altogether. If you have worries about it, share with us as we may have tips on how to overcome and continue benefitting from this medication.

I hope this addresses your worry. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
