Re: Frequent Urination & CFS?
prior to the CFS I had this issue. I was up 13 times one night peeing....my GOD. What a hellish thing to go through.
So, I went to a urologist who put me on 12 mgs of Imipramine at night. This is an old antidepressant, very old, which has a side effects of akig you sleepy and stopping the urge to urinate. Go figure. The reason she gave me this particular drug was that she understood I am hyper sensitive to ALL drugs and this one, because it IS so old and has been used extensively in children is available at teeny tiny dosages.. like 10 and 12 mgs tablets. It is also very cheap.
A regular adult dosage for depression would be between 80- 150 mgs. So I was essentially taking sub-infant dosages. And it worked like a charm.
Alos, if you drink coffee- stop. Start drinking gr tea instead. It has enough caffiene to wake you up but not enough to affect your bladder. Food allergies and intolerances will also make you have this urge and need to pee. This issue has been somewhat life long for me...... I always needed to know where the nearest rest room was. But now that I am off all the foods that I have sensitivities to, I no longer have this particular problem. For me it was fruits, casien and gluten. All are food issues with my immune system.
