I Get Up Several Times A Night To Pee

I Get Up Several Times A Night To Pee

Ever since I was diagnose, my sleep cycle is usually interrupted ever couple of hours so I can pee. I don't take insulin and I take oral medication. I have difficulty with sudden urge to pee during the day and sleeping through the night. Any reason?

You may want to change the time that you take your medication and take it a little earlier. When you take medication at night, you have to drink water, so drinking water too close to bedtime is bad. Also, if you take blood pressure medication or other medications, they act as a diuretic and they will definitely make you go a lot during the night.

I get up between 3-4 times a night. Luckily, I can fall right back to sleep. What is strange, though, is that I hardly go during the day.

i look at it differently...that is a great time to check your sugar to see if you are running high or low...if you are running high drink some water..if you are low...eat an apple...just look at it as nature taking care of you.

That's a wonderful answer, Jamayca!!! I talked to my dr and she prescribed med (Tolterodine tart er 4mg) for overactive bladder... I'm loving it! Not running to the bathroom every 10 minutes and praying I make it! And sleeping all night most nights is marvelous! Another med in my day, but worth it to me. My co pay is $15 for it but, once again... worth it to me.
