Oxybutin, please tell my your DC experience

After two long and hard years of DD (nearly 5) not being reliably dry she has been diagnosed with urge incontinence and an irritable bladder. She has been prescribed oxybutin and has been taking it for 4 days. She also has had bowel problems - impaction and constipation - which now seems to be managed by 2 sachets of movicol a day. I know it takes a while for the oxybution to start taking effect. Anyone else had DC who have taken oxybutin? How was it? Did it do the trick?

DS went on it at 8 for bedwetting, after desomelt failed to help. First dosage did nothing. Second upped dosage worked brilliantly but took a while. He came off after 3 months dry, to a little regression ( and 3 days of awful constipation, as the oxy made him rather loose)

Now he seems to be 95% dry.
