About Tropan 5 Tablet 10's

Tropan 5 Tablet 10's belongs to the group of medicines called anti-spasmodic/anti-cholinergic agents used to treat overactive bladder (OAB) with symptoms of urinary incontinence (urine leakage), urgent or frequent urination, increased night-time urination, and dysuria (painful or difficult urination). Additionally, Tropan 5 Tablet 10's is used to treat night-time bed-wetting in children above 5 years when other treatments have not worked.

Tropan 5 Tablet 10's contains 'Oxybutynin chloride', which works by blocking the release of a chemical transmitter called acetylcholine responsible for bladder muscle contractions. Thereby relaxing the smooth muscles of the urinary bladder and stopping sudden muscle spasms (contractions). This helps control urine by delaying the initial desire to empty the bladder and increases the urine holding capacity of the bladder.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Overactive bladder (OAB): The contraction or tightening of bladder muscles causes bladder spasms. This is termed as overactive bladder. Continuous contractions may cause an urge to urinate. Overactive bladder is characterised by involuntary leakage of urine, excessive urination, and urgent need to urinate. The common causes of bladder spasms are urinary tract infections, drinking too much caffeine or alcohol, diabetes, constipation, impaired kidney function, bladder stones, enlarged prostate, or neurological disorders. Overactive bladder symptoms include urinating more than 8 times in a day and more than 2times at night, strong and sudden need to urinate, leakage of urine, and loss of bladder control.
