Tropan XL 5 mg
Tropan XL is prescribed for the treatment of inability to control urine, uncontrolled contraction of the bladder wall, birth defect affecting the spine along with several other problems.
Tropan XL is used to treat urinary incontinence (inability to control urine), urgency and frequency to pass urine in unstable bladder conditions due to idiopathic detrusor instability (uncontrolled contraction of the bladder wall) or neurogenic bladder disorders (detrusor hyperreflexia in conditions such as spina bifida [birth defect affecting the spine] and multiple sclerosis). It is also indicated in children over 5 years of age for detrusor overactivity or a neurogenic bladder disorders, and for night time bedwetting, when other treatments have failed.
Tropan XL active ingredient is Oxybutynin. It belongs to class of medications called anticholinergics/ antimuscarinics. It works on the smooth muscles of the bladder, relaxes it and relieves the spasm thereby controlling the frequency of contractions and urgency to pass urine.
Oxybutynin is an antispasmodic medicine that helps control overactive bladder, a chronic condition that can be improved with medication. Oxybutynin may reduce the frequency of bathroom visits and may help to control wetting accidents.
