Can xanax give you urinary track infections?

UTIs are not a direct side-effect of Xanax. However, it can cause urinary retention, which in turn means that you urinate less frequently, and possibly allows bacteria to grow in the urinary tract and spread to the bladder more easily than if you urinated regularly.

Otherwise, even people on zero medications get UTIs. It could be associated with Xanax, or it might not be. If you continue to suffer from chronic UTIs I'd seek the advice of your doctor.
