I need to know the price (at the drugstore) of the product "OXYTROL",
which is a patch containing the drug Oxybutynin for the treatment of
urinary incontinence.

I know that OXYTROL has been launched recently in the US, by WATSON
LABS, and is already available on the US market.

Please, indicate the price corresponding to the every available
package (how supply) of the prodcut on the market.

**If the information is not available online, I suggest a telephone
call to a drugstore, asking how the product is supplied, and the
prices for the different presentations of the product**

Dear tom136, 

I found one pharmacy that details the prices of the different
packages. Would you accept this as an answer?

Dear Tom, 

As I mentioned before, I made an extensive research, and found only
one piece of information, indicating the price of Oxytrol. Therefore,
I must disclaim, that the information is not crossed with any other

According to the online pharmacy "RX Solutions"
< and then click
on "O" or search for Oxytrol in the search box>, 8 units of Oxytrol
cost $69.64, 16 units cost $136.78 and 24 units cost $203.92. RX
Solutions claim that this is a discount price - this is the
"department" where they put it.

Watson Pharma also built this drug its own site - - where you could subsribe to get news on the
product (but unfortunately they do not publish recommended consumer

Given that the official launch of Oxytrol was only yesterday (May
19th, and see : SG Cowen, "Watson Pharmaceuticals "strong buy"",
), it is hardly surprising that there is little online information. I
would keep you updated if I found anything new during my rutine
Internet research.

I hope that answered your question. I'd be pleased to clarify my
answer before you rate it.

Hello Tom,

If you search the Watson site for Oxytrol, you come up with only the
(Oxybutynin Transdermal System)
NDC: 52544-0920-08

This implies Watson only supplies 8-packs.

I think I probably found the same online pharmacy with prices as
politicalguru, but she was there before me so I do not feel happy
about posting it as an answer. They give prices for 8, 16 or 24
patches. However, this is presumably their own offer on multiple

A Watson press release from 28 April at
gives the following information, which might be of interest to you:
"Watson has priced OXYTROL(TM) at a 10% discount as compared to the
Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC) for the most widely prescribed
extended release OAB branded products, specifically Detrol(R) LA, 4mg
and Ditropan XL(R), 10mg."

Dear tehuti-ga,
thank you very much for your comment. Well, I need the info a.s.a.p.
Politicalguru-ga has not posted the answer yet... is there any way to
let him/her know about this? Can you communicate with him/her
internally and let him/her know that I am waiting for the reply?(I
have already answered the requested clarification). I appreciate your
respect to the precedence. I do not want to create conflict between
you and you and politicalguru-ga, but I think that for this cases it
should be some kind of Google's policy (a time-frame or something like
that). Because I, as a customer, would like to get the answer
a.s.a.p., but also not to create internal conflict bewteen Google's
Thank you,
