It also has direct spasmolytic effects on bladder smooth muscle as a calcium antagonist and local anesthetic, but at concentrations far above those used clinically. It is available orally in generic formulation and as the brand-names Ditropan and Lyrinel XL, as a transdermal patch under the brand name Oxytrol, and as a topical gel under the brand name Gelnique. Also Ditrospam by Avenzor Syria.

Oxybutynin is also a possible treatment of hyperhidrosis, or hyper-active sweating.
