An additional serum (Beta HCG) pregnancy test will be performed upon completion of the study. 2. Women of childbearing potential must practice abstinence or be using an acceptable form of contraception throughout the duration of the study. Acceptable forms of contraception include the following: 1. intrauterine device in place for at least 3 months prior to the start of the study and remaining in place during the study period, or 2. barrier methods containing or used in conjunction with a spermicidal agent, or 3. postmenopausal accompanied with a documented postmenopausal course of at least one year or surgical sterility (tubal ligation, oophorectomy or hysterectomy). 3. During the course of the study, from study screen until study exit – including the washout period, women of childbearing potential must use a spermicide containing barrier method of contraception in addition to their current contraceptive device. This advice should be documented in the informed consent form. 3. Weight: At least 60 kg (132 lbs) for man and 48 kg (106 lbs) for women and within 15% of Ideal Body Weight (IBW), as referenced by the Table of ""Desirable Weights of Adults"" Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, 1999 (See Part II ADMINISTRATIVE ASPECTS OF BIOEQUIVALENCE PROTOCOLS). 4. All subjects should be judged normal and healthy during a pre-study medical evaluation (physical examination, laboratory evaluation, 12-lead ECG, hepatitis B and hepatitis C tests, HIV test, and urine drug screen including amphetamine, barbiturates, benzodiazepine, cannabinoid, cocaine, opiate screen, phencyclidine, and methadone) performed within 14 days of the initial dose of study medication. Exclusion Criteria:
1. Institutionalized subjects will not be used. 2. Social Habits: 1. Use of any tobacco products within 1 year of the start of the study. 2. Ingestion of any alcoholic, caffeine- or xanthine-containing food or beverage within the 48 hours prior to the initial dose of study medication. 3.

A positive test for any drug included in the urine drug screen. 3. Medications: 1. Use of any medication within the 14 days prior to the initial dose of study medication. 2.

Use of hormonal contraceptives and hormonal replacement therapy within three months prior to the initial dose of study medication. 4. Diseases: 1. History of any significant chronic disease. 2. History of drug and/or alcohol abuse. 3. Acute illness at the time of either the pre-study medical evaluation or dosing. 4. A positive HIV, hepatitis B, or hepatitis C test. 5. Risk or history of urinary retention, gastric retention or narrow angle glaucoma. 5. Abnormal and clinically significant laboratory test results: 1. Clinically significant deviation from the Guide to Clinically Relevant Abnormalities (See Part II: ADMINISTRATIVE ASPECTS OF BIOEQUIVALENCE PROTOCOLS). 2. Abnormal and clinically relevant ECG tracing. 6. Donation or loss of a significant volume of blood or plasma (> 450 ml) within 28 days prior to the initial dose of study medication. 7. Subjects who have received an investigational drug within 30 days prior to the initial dose of study medication. 8. Allergy or hypersensitivity to oxybutynin chloride or any other anticholinergics. 9. History of difficulty in swallowing, or any gastrointestinal disease which could affect the drug absorption. 10. Consumption of grapefruit or grapefruit-containing products within 7 days of study drug administration.
