In brief: Oxybutynin & Panic
Ditropan (oxybutynin) is used to treat overactive bladder.
It can cause nausea, dry mouth, blurred vision, headaches, dizziness & rash. Some cases develop nervousness, but to my knowledge, no panic attacks are reported.

In brief: Anxiety Possible
I have never seen outright panic attacks with oxybutynin.
However, increased anxiety and agitation are possible side effects, and some people can have irregularities in their heartbeat. This could result in a picture that looks like a panic attack. If there are concerns about how your or a loved one is tolerating oxybutynin, you will want to contact the prescribing physician.
