I am a 60 year old male and usually tale pregabalin to the tune of 3 grams per night to induce sleep. Once I took six GRAMs of Pregabalin and the next morning I was unable to pass urine. Was this caused by my excessive use of Pregabalin? I was passed an indwelling catheter which collected 2000 cc of urine after 6 hours. Does pregabalin in higher dosage cause retention of urine in males?

Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that focuses on improving your overall well-being, rather than just focusing on the symptoms of the disease. Being a complete natural based method, it has no side effects. Ayurvedic remedies for kidney stones emphasize on improving your lifestyle and diet to keep the energy balance in your body.
The causes of kidney stones range from factors such as an imbalanced diet, sedentary lifestyle and spicy food. Less water consumption is also a major cause of kidney stones. These factors cause problems in the various doshas in the human body, leading to diseases. It leads to toxin formation in the body called ama. These toxins trickle down to the urinary tract, causing crystals to form, thus leading to kidney stones.
Ayurvedic remedies consist of using diuretic herbs to dissolve the stones. Once the stones are dissolved, it is then recommended to use various cleansing techniques such as Panchakarma, which helps in strengthening the body. It is recommended to drink at least 2 to 3 liters of water daily and urinate whenever the urge occurs.

1. Avoid eating dry and heavy foods

7. Increase water consumption during summer months
