Ask your doctor if prescription medicines, such as antidepressants and pain medicines, could be making your symptoms worse. He or she may be able to switch your medicine.
Avoid testosterone, including gels, implants, or injections.
Check with your doctor or pharmacist about the side effects of the medicines, supplements, or herbs you are taking. If urinary retention is listed as a side effect, ask your doctor whether there are other medicines you can take that do not have this side effect.
