Oxybutynin: In MS this is typically
used to help control issues of urgency.

“Oxybutynin reduces muscle spasms of
the bladder and urinary tract.

Oxybutynin is used to treat symptoms of overactive bladder, such
as frequent or urgent urination, incontinence (urine leakage), and
increased night-time urination.
Oxybutynin may also be used for purposes not listed in this
medication guide.” –Drugs.com

Matt: I felt like this helped at first but after a while I think I
built a tolerance? I take it when I know I am going to not be by a
restroom, just in case…
