am a 57 year old woman-post menapause....one month ago i spent 2 sleepless nights urinating every 5 minutes....i mean full bladder urinating....thought it was some sort of wacky uti as i am prone to them....had urine tested no infection...i was diagnosed with oab...gived a samp;e of detrol which helped somewhat then given toviaz which worked well....but it seems that there are good days and bad days....mostly bad nights...i was wondering if this is common..i mean to say is it normal to feel ok and then feel like i have to urinate even if i just did.....i wont worry if this is a normal thing,,,i read somewhere that its common in postmemopausal womanView Thread
Thanks for sharing.... I am on toviaz now and I wonder why it works perfectly but every now and then I get a recurrence like I'm not even on meds... Right now I feel crapy ....I was up every 2 hours urinating or the past 5 days.... Is this a normal thing or do I need to think of changing medicationsView Thread
