It is not a typical or even reported side effects of your medications.
That is possible, but would be rare.

The best thing to do would be to bring in all the medication etc that you are taking and consult with your primary care MD. She can do a complete physical exam, lab work and perhaps some special testing to see why you are urinating and defecating so much as well as get to the bottom of your cough.
Does this make sense to you?
