The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Can tramadol cause difficulty urinating? I am on 100mg for my knee. Even with a full bladder I have to work really hard to get urine out.

Is it concerning if I started amitiza (lubiprostone) and now have a full bladder (increased urination) every hour with no change in fluid intake?

Very unusual...: I have never heard of this side effect from the drug in question, nor is it identified in the pdr as a significant adverse reaction.

You can also stop the Amitiza (lubiprostone) ; see if the increased urination returns to baseline. ...Read more
