Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
Dosage for methotrexate is 15 to 17 mg. over ten year period.
Have been taking about 800 mg. of frolic acid per day, plus whatever occurs naturally in food.
For about a year have been dealing with urinary retention. Don't know if there is a connection.
Will be seeing my doctor tomorrow .
Also take generic Zantac
From this study (2 months ago):
The urinary hesitancy / not feeling like fully empty has been chronic for at least the last year. Female, so not prostate related :-), chronic, so not UTI either.
From this study (5 months ago):
Urinary retention much better once off Claritin. Allergies worse. Need to find an alternate antihistamine.
