I stopped Myrbetriq 50 mg after taking it for 18 months (1 year and half) as I discovered a urinary retention (around 580 ml) I discovered it by chance as I experienced bed wetting so I went for Ultrasound
I am a 71 year old male and I started Xanax several years ago and I started having retention problems about 5 years ago. My Dr wanted to do several terrible sounding tests but my better sense said to wait and check out the meds I take first.
