Oxybutynin is an antimuscarinic substance used frequently for the treatment of overactive bladder and nocturnal enuresis. During the use of such anticholinergic substances, such effects as the decrease in depressive symptoms, euphoria effect, relaxation and the alleviation of the side-effects of neuroleptic medications could be seen. In this case report, an adolescent who was referred to our clinic because of oxybutynin abuse and a suicide attempt has presented. According to the criteria of the DSM-V, other (or unknown) substance use disorder was diagnosed. Oxybutynin is among the non-controlled drugs and can be obtained easily without prescription in Turkey. In the literature this is the first case of Oxybutynin abuse in an adolescent. This case has been presented for the purpose of drawing attention to the oxybutynin abuse which is a growing problem among adolescents.
