Medicines and Urinary Symptoms
Many prescription and nonprescription medicines can cause urinary symptoms. A few examples include:
- Opiate pain medicines.
- Tricyclic antidepressants.
If you develop a urinary problem after taking a medicine:
- Call the doctor who prescribed the medicine to determine whether you should stop taking it or take a different one. An appointment may not be necessary.
- If you are taking a nonprescription medicine, stop taking the medicine. Call your doctor if you feel you need to continue taking the medicine.
