Description of Gelnique Gel
Gelnique Gel is a topical medication with the generic name Oxybutynin. It belongs to a family of medicines known as antispasmodics. One packet of Gelnique Gel is equivalent to one dose. The drug is a prescription medication; you need to consult your doctor before you buy Gelnique Gel online.
Indications & Dosage of Gelnique Gel
Gelnique Gel is used to treat symptoms of an overactive bladder such as incontinence (urine leakage) and urgent or frequent urination.
Oxybutynin, the active ingredient in the drug, blocks the cholinergic receptors on the surface of the muscle cell on the wall of the bladder. This prohibits the action of acetylcholine on these receptors, which relaxes the detrusor muscle in the urinary bladder. Gelnique Gel helps prevent involuntary contractions of the urinary bladder and improves the bladder’s capacity to hold urine.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the use of the medication. Wash your hands with soap before handling Gelnique Gel. Wash the treatment area with a mild skin cleanser. Empty the contents of packet on your hands and apply it over the treatment area.
Gelnique Gel can be applied on the skin of the upper arm, thigh, shoulder or stomach region. Apply the medication to a different area every day. Do not apply Gelnique Gel on the same area two times in a row.
