Drugs used in the treatment of urogenital conditions and diseases such as Urinary Incontinence; Prostatic hyperplasia; and Erectile dysfunction.
Agents that inhibit the actions of the parasympathetic nervous system. The major group of drugs used therapeutically for this purpose is the Muscarinic Antagonists.
Drugs that bind to but do not activate Muscarinic Receptors, thereby blocking the actions of endogenous Acetylcholine or exogenous agonists.
Oxybutynin Chloride is the chloride salt form of oxybutynin, a tertiary amine and anticholinergic agent with antispasmodic activity. Oxybutynin chloride exerts its antimuscarinic effect on bladder smooth muscle by blocking muscarinic receptors in smooth muscle, thereby inhibiting acetylcholine binding. This results in a relaxation of bladder smooth muscle, a reduction of involuntary muscle contractions and delays the initial desire to void.
