Multi-tablet oxybutynin system for treating incontinence

Multi-tablet oxybutynin system for treating incontinence

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1247(3), June 19

The present invention provides a simple multi-tablet system for the treatment of urinary incontinence with oxybutynin. Particular embodiments of the invention provide a first tablet that releases oxybutynin over a short period of time, e.g. less than six hours, and a second tablet that releases oxybutynin over an extended period of time, e.g., eighteen to twenty-four hours, to maintain therapeutically effective levels oxybutynin in the mammal for a period of about twenty four hours. Unlike other systems, this system is easily adaptable to compensate for patient to patient variability in response to oxybutynin therapy. The invention also provides a method of treating urinary incontinence with the above system and a kit comprising various first and second tablets to rapidly develop a patient's preferred dosing regimen, i.e., the dosing regimen which provides the greatest therapeutic benefit and/or least amount or severity of side effects.
