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. Men who have urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate gland and people who have trouble urinating because of narrowing of the urethra may be at increased risk of certain side effects from taking Xodol. 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.
