Hydrocodone Urinary Retention


I was taking 5mg hydrocodone for a year.  Started feeling nausea and stomach pain.  CT scan showed
my bladder is about 3 times normal size because of urinary retention.  Anybody ever heard if hydro can cause this in men (with enlarged prostate to start with).

Thanks.

Hi Randy.  Urinary retention is a side-effect of all opiates for men and women.   Were you just taking 5mg per day for a year?   The hydros could be exacerbating an existing condition you may have.   Talk to your doctor about this in more detail.
