Loss of bladder contractility is another cause. See a urologist. ...Read more
Can unisom cause urine retention? I have been taking 150mg of it for about a week, the stuff works. Though now I have to pee and can not!

If you can't, you should ask your doctor for prescription medication, as most sleep meds from the store will do the same thing. You could try melatonin from the store. ...Read more
