I am 46 and have noticed lately at night I am getting up more at night
to go now, this just started recently and concerned. I have coffee in the morning, not so much juice at night, I do have a Pepsi at dinner.
Not on any meds at this time, just concerned and having to get up in the middle of the night interfering with sleep at times. I do take a sleep med (Ambien) before going to bed for my sleep issues, has anyone else had this issue and what I need to look at . I have good over all health and some stress who doesn't these days.

I was going every hour and a half to two hours at night. Tried all the 'scrips but nothing worked. Oxytrol helped a little but is so expensive. The last time I saw the doc, though, as she was leaving the exam room she said, " Don't go the first time the urge hits." Apparently it goes away. Anyway, I started waiting until it didn't go away and now (8-9 months later) I go once or maybe twice a night and have even slept all the way through a couple of times lately. I guess it's kind of like doing Kegals or something, only less boring. Good luck!
