Wow. I am a woman and I have this problem...it is directly related to my suboxone as it started right when I started on the subs, almost a year ago....It is very frustrating. Kind of embarassing too. But I would much rather deal with this side effect than be back where I was a year ago. Funny though...anytime I ask my sub dr. about an issue, such as the peeing, or sweating, he says, "none of my other patients has that problem, you'd be the first" I don't like this answer, I feel like he is trying to do something psychologically to me, like...Oh YOU are the ONLY one, it must just be YOU>..what ever. I think a lot of doc. say stuff like this just so they don't have to deal. I don;t know about anyone else,but my appt. with him are like 5 min. long. That way he can make more money, the more patients, the more $ So no one can have a problem. Anyway,back to the subject...I do think this is a side effect from the subs. but it is good to mention it to a primary dr, just in case there is something else going on.

Worst case ... have your partner put your hand in a bowl of warm water when you're asleep
Tell me about it

OMG, when I was abusing Percs I couldn't pee worth a damn!! I used to freak out because I thought my bladder would eventually explode. And I don't know how many times I wet the bed because I couldn't pee, would go lie down, and nodded off (literally) so hard my body couldn't wake me up to get to the bathroom. Oh, the joys of using opiates!! LOL. Bupe gives me this problem at about 30% of the level of full agonists. Yes, it should subside over time. If it really persists, I would try Avodart or another prostate drug, because I think the reason for the hesitant flow is similar.
Best of luck,

I had back surgery because of a disc problem. It also caused NGB (neuro-genic bladder) which is basically like what you are describing. The nerves that go to your bladder run past the discs in the lumbar spine and a central herniation in particular can cause this condition. If not treated, it can become more of a permanent condition. If you have low back problems, maybe see a back doc. Prostate or infection can also be blamed among other things. Best not to guess or let it continue without med. attention.
