Can I use Xodol if I have a history of urinary problems?

If you have a history of urinary problems, talk to your doctor before taking Xodol (hydrocodone and acetaminophen), a drug prescribed to relieve pain.

For instance, doctors know that opioid medications such as hydrocodone may cause spasms in the muscles of the urethra. Xodol may also affect your ability to urinate completely.
