Medicines and Urinary Symptoms

Many prescription and nonprescription medicines can cause urinary symptoms. A few examples include:

  • Antihistamines.
  • Decongestants.
  • Opioid 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.
