1. A method for lessening the incidence of side-effects in a patient associated with the oral administration of a controlled-release dosage form tablet comprising oxybutynin, wherein
the method comprises administering said oxybutynin from the controlled-release dosage form tablet to the patient over twenty-four hours and thereby lessening the incidence of side effects.
2. A method for lessening side-effects and for avoiding peak concentrations of oxybutynin in the plasma in a patient by administering a dosage form tablet comprising oxybutynin, wherein the method comprises administering orally said dosage form tablet that administers oxybutynin in a controlled rate over twenty-four hours to the patient, and thereby lessens side effects and avoids peak concentrations of oxybutynin in the plasma of the patient.
3. A method for providing a continuous plasma oxybutynin concentration in a patient, wherein the method comprises administering orally a dosage form tablet comprising oxybutynin that is administered over twenty-four hours to the patient at a controlled and sustained rate to provide the desired plasma oxybutynin concentration.
4. A method for reducing peak plasma concentrations of oxybutynin administered for treating incontinence in a patient; wherein the method comprises administering a controlled-release dosage form tablet comprising oxybutynin orally to the patient over twenty four hours from the controlled-release dosage form tablet and thereby reduce peak plasma concentrations and treat the incontinence.
5. A method for governing the plasma concentrations of oxybutynin in a patient, wherein the method comprises administering orally a controlled-release dosage form tablet comprising oxybutynin that is administered from said controlled-release dosage form tablet over twenty-four hours to the patient to provide a plasma oxybutynin concentration of 4.2 to 6.7 ng/ml.
6. A method for reducing the concentration of desethyl-metabolite of oxybutynin in the plasma of a patient, wherein the method comprises administering orally to the patient oxybutynin from a controlled-release dosage form tablet over twenty-four hours and thereby reduce the concentration of the metabolite.
