Can I take Roxicet if I have a history of urinary problems?

If you have a history of urinary problems and you're prescribed Roxicet (acetaminophen and oxycodone), a medication for treating moderate to moderately severe pain, ask your doctor if it's okay for you to take it. Since urinary retention is a possible side effect of Roxicet, it may not be a good drug choice for someone who already has urinary problems. Your doctor will help you decide if Roxicet is the best medication for you or if you should take a different type of pain medication.
