Oxybutynin

Hi, for several years I've been taking 20mg of Oxybutynin a day for an over active bladder. The medication helps a lot but I wonder if I'll have to take this for the rest of my life or if there other treatments I could consider now? I have also notice my bladder doesn't fully empty when I go to the toilet, it seems to hold some urine back, is there any help for that?
Many thanks

Re: Oxybutynin

There are lots of other tablet treatments available as well as some transdermal (skin patch) preparations. You can discuss alternatives with your GP. There is a tablet called Mirabegron which doesn't associate with poor bladder emptying and this may suit you.
