1/1. Acute, transient urinary retention from combined ecstasy and methamphetamine use.

    methamphetamine and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA or "ecstasy") are synthetic amphetamine analogs that have become increasingly popular, particularly among adolescents and young adults. Many deleterious physiologic effects arising from the use of these agents have been well documented in the medical literature. urinary retention, however, has rarely been reported as an effect of MDMA or methamphetamine use and is thought to occur as a result of alpha-adrenoceptor stimulation of the bladder neck. We report a case of acute, transient urinary retention due to combined MDMA and methamphetamine use with laboratory confirmation.
