Hi, maybe one would like to include a reference to this similar compound. It is very popualr in china, but I cannot find any reference in wikipedia.
The uses are the same and the properties are similar.
Oxybutynin transdermal patch
What is YOUR supporting data for using the term 'possible' ? , instead of 'very effective' ?. I think you are splitting hairs with me Scott1976. Someone else could easily remove your connection of Oxybutynin with hyperhidrosis altogether, because Oxybutynin is not actually licenced yet for hyperhidrosis. Who says that YOUR wording is exactly correct, Scott1976 ?. Try45
- Actually, I'm not sure which wording would be best. That's why I've suggested discussion. The wording in the article appears to be based on the three cited referenced. I don't have access to the full text of the journal articles, only the abstracts. At least one of them seems to be a case study involving only one patient. If anyone has access to the full text, maybe we can see what the authors have concluded, and Wikipedia's wording should be consistent with that. What do you think? -- Ed (Edgar181) 13:35, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Hmm.. I just googled "hyperhidrosis oxybutynin" and there are over 6,300 results.... most of the start ones confirming the use of Oxybutynin for Hyperhidrosis. Also remember, drugs do not need to be licensed for a certain condition for it to be used for that condition, and that there are over 200 countries around the world, each one has a different system in terms of medications being used for illnesses. It could be in the U.S. a medication needs to be approved for a certain illness, but in many countries, that is not the case and is totally up to the doctor. This is not USPedia. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:59, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Clinical efficacy (POV ref. to trials)
- In two well-designed trials in patients with overactive bladder, transdermal oxybutynin 3.9mg/day...
Has someone determined these two clinical trials of oxybutynin were "well-designed," and if so who? One likely source would be: those responsible for conducting the trials. Footnotes are desirable; however, they don't transform opinion into fact.
Addition to pharmacology
I added a paragraph to the pharmacology section, giving information on absorption time and half-life. I also found a source for the statement that the drug can cause calcium deficiency (the article recommends calcium supplements.) But this is eHow, which looks to be a contributor-built site. I am not sure it is trustworthy.
Discrepancy in the info box
The structural formula at the top clearly shows 5 carbons between N and O in the chain at the right. The systematic name, at this point, uses the word butynyl, which would have only 4 carbons. (The space-filling picture could be in agreement with the systematic name, but it is very hard to count the carbons there.) The title of the article suggests that it is butynyl and not pentynyl, but I am not competent to really know which is correct. Nor do I have the tools or skills to fix it.
