Reviews for Bethanechol

For Urinary Retention: "This helped my neurogenic bladder and neurogenic bowel condition. After 2 years, tho, it started giving me nausea and vomiting. I see you are supposed to take it 1 hr before or 2 hrs after a meal or it can cause nausea and vomiting. I hadn't ever paid attention to that and I was fine, now I can't tolerate it and am sad bc it really helped both conditions."

For Urinary Retention: "Has anyone else choked on taking this medicine because it starts dissolving as you take it? It lodged in my throat this morning and I couldn't breathe. My hands we going numb but managed to stay somewhat calm until it dissolved enough to throw it up. Usually it comes back up before it gets stuck"

For Urinary Retention: "I have Multiple Sclerosis and have a problem with my bladder fully emptying. Any amount of urine that Is left in my bladder, makes it seem like I haven't even gone to the bathroom. Bethanechol makes it so my bladder fully empties and I don't have those feelings."
