Section 4.1:

Adults and Elderly

For the symptomatic treatment of urge incontinence and/or increased urinary frequency associated with urgency as may occur in patients with unstable bladder.

Children over the age of 6 years

The symptomatic treatment of detrusor hyperreflexia secondary to a neurogenic condition.

Paediatric population

Oxybutynin hydrochloride is indicated in children over 5 years of age for:

-    Urinary incontinence, urgency and frequency in unstable bladder conditions due to idiopathic overactive bladder or neurogenic bladder disorders (detrusor overactivity).

-    Nocturnal enuresis associated with detrusor overactivity, in conjunction with nondrug therapy, when other treatment has failed.

 

 

Section 4.2

…/

Children over the age of 5 6 years

Initial dose of 5 mg once a day increased in 5 mg increments up to a maximum of 15 mg once a day.

Lyrinel XL is not recommended for use in children below age of 5 6 years, due to a lack of data on safety and efficacy (see sections 5.1 and 5.2).

/…

 

Section 4.4

Paediatric population

Oxybutynin hydrochloride is not recommended for use in children below age 5 years due to insufficient data on safety and efficacy.

There is limited evidence supporting the use of Oxybutynin in children with monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (not related to detrusor overactivity).

In children over 5 years of age, Oxybutynin hydrochloride should be used with caution as they may be more sensitive to the effects of the product, particularly the CNS and psychiatric adverse reactions.
