Neurogenic bladder: If you have severe sciatica that needs all these medications, then your bladder may be affected, especially if you did not feel the leakage.The drugs are not likely the cause. You need urodynamics tests by a urologist.

Opiate usage: oxynorm has oxycodone in it which is known to have urinary retention qualities. you may wanbt to consider switching to another medicine especially consider non-opiate medications if possible.
