The dose must be changed per the patient's response to the medication, but only under the supervision of your doctor. Avoid sudden discontinuation of the treatment as it may worsen the condition.
Cystran 5mg may not be suitable for everyone. You should not use it if you have difficulty urinating, passing, and digesting food.

Always inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking. Taking certain other medications with oxybutynin may affect how well they work and increase the risk of side effects. These include drugs for heart problems, certain antibiotics (clarithromycin and erythromycin), and fungal infections (itraconazole, miconazole, and ketoconazole).
You should also know that taking Oxybutynin at high environmental temperatures can cause fever and heat stroke due to decreased sweating.
Some commonly reported side effects of Cystran 5 mg are constipation, dry mouth, headache, and diarrhea. Developing such mild side effects does not mean you should stop taking the medicine. Talk to your doctor immediately if these side effects bother you or persist. Drinking plenty of water helps to reduce the risk of side effects. Oxybutynin may make you feel dizzy or sleepy or cause blurred vision, so avoiding driving or doing any activity that requires your complete attention is best.
