Trial DescriptionThis is a randomized, double blind, cross-over study of the combination of atomoxetine and oxybutynin (ato-oxy) in children with DS and OSA documented by polysomnography (PSG). Participants will receive high dose ato-oxy for four weeks as well as low dose ato-oxy for four weeks in random order. During the high dose ato-oxy period, participants will take 5 mg oxybutynin and 0.5mg/kg/day (max 40 mg) atomoxetine nightly for one week. Atomoxetine dose will then be increased to 1.2 mg/kg/day (max 80 mg). During the low dose ato-oxy period, participants will take 5 mg oxybutynin and 0.5mg/kg/day (max 40 mg) atomoxetine.
