    Oxybutynin Question (Expert or Experienced user)
    fanficactress posted:
    Ok, I am 19, I was diagnosed with Over-active bladder about a month or so ago, and I have a question about my medicine.

    I have had about three instances where after I take the medicine, like not even 15-20 minutes later, I have to run to the bathroom and vomit.

    Recently, I have been taking my prenatal vitamin, and my bladder medicine and with those three times during this month, I have been vomiting and this has been for maybe the last couple of weeks. Could my body be rejecting the medicine?

    I also have PCOS, and took a pregnancy test about a week or so ago, and it gave me a false positive because the next day, I took two more and they were negative. I went to my doctor the next day and had a blood test done. It was negative but I hadn't have had my period yet.

    But with my PCOS, it causes irregularity, but I haven't had my period yet and I think i had it between the 3rd and 6th of June. Could I also just be having pre-morning sickness or should I just weight that one out of the equation and think it more towards my meds since it's only happen a few times in the past few weeks?

    I have never seen vomiting with oxybutynin and my concern is that you feel you may be pregnant. I suggest you see a health care provider.

    I actually discovered that it was my prenatal vitamin. I took my prenatal vitamin and I did the same thing. It wasn't my bladder meds.
