If you have used Ditropan XL (oxybutynin chloride) and experienced an increase or decrease in acne, please tell us about it here. Be sure to include as much information as possible, including when you started taking Ditropan, the dosage, other side effects you experienced, and anything else that might be relevant. Acne is sometimes a side effect of prescription drug usage, but other times it has to do with hard-to-track-down lifestyle changes, bacteria in your gut, or nutrient deficiency. In our experience, the best way to treat acne is by eliminating sugar, flour, dairy, caffeine, and vegetable oils from your diet. Supplementing zinc, vitamin b complex, boron, melatonin, and SOD is likely to help as well.

I started taking oxybutynin for hyperhydrosis.
It’s been about 2 months since i started taking it, and probably about 2 weeks after i began i noticed more acne on my face. I usually never get acne, maybe one pimple a month. However now after 2 months of taking the pills i have had the same pimples for over 6 weeks. They tend to randomly become small, then spontaneously get bigger at other times. Since taking oxybutynin, I tend to always have at least 5 pimples on my face. They seem to group together, there are 3 on one side of my chin, 4 on the other, 2 above my eyebrow, and 1 above the other eyebrow. Sometimes I get a couple on my nose. It’s pretty frustrating/embarrassing, considering I’m a 25 y.o. female and stopped getting regular pimples when i was around 16. i haven’t changed my diet, or my exercise routine. I am going to try to reduce the amount i use (I was using three 5mg tablets a day), however having acne far outweighs the adverse affects of hyperhydrosis. Any recommendations would be amazing. Hopefully this info can help researchers a bit.
